About the JustHelping collection

Please support Hospiscare and help us to continue providing palliative and end of life care to the local community. We will collect and recycle your Christmas tree and would really appreciate a donation for each tree to go towards vital patient care and family support. 


Exeter University

Many thanks to the Grounds Offce at Exeter University for supporting this initiative with a generous offer to take and chip the donated trees and to then use the chippings in the local community.

Here’s how your donation can make a difference in providing funds for patient care:

  • £15 could pay for a cosy fleece blanket for a patient staying on the ward

  • £30 could pay for an hour's specialised care in the ward for a seriously ill patient

  • £50 could pay for a home visit by a community nurse
