Christmas Tree Recycling Raises Vital Funds

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and St Elizabeth Hospice have thanked the local community for their support, after they helped the hospices’ joint Christmas tree recycling scheme – ‘Tree-cycling’ – raise £9,713 for the two charities. 

Taking place between 12th and 13th January, Tree-cycling saw staff and volunteers from both hospices collect more than 780 Christmas trees from homes, businesses and organisations throughout Ipswich, Felixstowe, Stowmarket and the surrounding area, with each supporter making a donation to the charities in exchange for collection of their trees. 

The total raised surpasses the £7,343 raised by Tree-Cycling 2022, which is an annual initiative run by the Just-Helping organisation.
