About this Collection
Please support Hospiscare and help us to continue providing free palliative and end of life care for the local community. In return for a donation (we suggest £10 per tree), we will collect and recycle your Christmas tree. Your donation will help make a real difference to local patients and their families across Exeter, Mid and East Devon.
Please note: we do not receive any funding for disposing of your tree and cannot accept artificial trees.
A small act of kindness can go a long way. Take a look at the impact your donation could have:
- £15 would pay for a cosy fleece blanket for a patient staying on the ward
- £31 would cover the cost of a bed in the ward for one hour
- £37 would pay for an hour’s specialist bereavement care
- £56 would pay for a home visit by a Hospiscare Community Nurse Specialist
Our volunteers will be collecting in the following area:
EX1, EX2, EX3, EX4, EX8, EX14 1, EX14 2, EX14 3
Collections will take place between Friday 7 January and Saturday 8 January 2022. Please ensure your tree is outside your house, easily accessible and clearly marked ‘Hospiscare pick-up’ by 8am on Friday 7 January to ensure a speedy collection. All decorations will need to be removed prior to collection
Don’t miss out, please register your tree by 3 January at 8am.
