One of our main events in the month of January is to take part in the East Cheshire Hospice Christmas Tree Collection, which this year which is targeted this year to raise over ninety thousand pounds for this very worthy cause.
Now in its seventeenth year, the concept has grown rapidly since it commenced, saving people the laborious problem of disposing of their previously well decorated Christmas trees, which, as the Christmas holiday passes, obviously become unwanted and generally, discarded.
Cheshire Vehicle Rentals have been keen supporters for many years and this year in excess of 6500 trees where collected over the weekend of 9th and 10th January by over 280 volunteers, giving their time to this very worthy cause. Throughout the weekend Cheshire Rentals provided twenty three vehicles made up of a combination of Luton tail-lift and long wheel base vans, to be used for collection, enabling the collection to run with a maximum number of vehicles to support the considerable amount of trees needing to be collected.
For the past 16 years the Christmas Tree Collection volunteers have raised funds for the Hospice and this year the cumulative net total given has passed a massive £640,000.
East Cheshire Hospice commented ‘Thank you to all the generous supporters and sponsors whose donations made this worthwhile and to the fantastic volunteers whose hard work made this possible.’ If you would like to get involved you can register for the 2017 collection here http://www.echtrees.org.uk/help/ or alternatively, if you would like your tree collected to help this worthy cause then visit this page http://www.echtrees.org.uk/collect
