ST ROCCO’S Hospice, Warrington has seen a huge success for the eighth year running, with their annual Christmas Tree Collection.
More than 2400 trees have been collected and an astounding £33,000 has been raised for patient care at the hospice!
On Saturday January 11 more than 130 volunteers donated their time and help pick up used Christmas Trees. Residents were able to discard of their Christmas Tree by making a donation to St. Rocco’s and the trees were then recycled and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.
Charlotte Howard, Events Fundraiser for St. Rocco’s Hospice said, “We’re so happy that this year’s Christmas Tree Collection has been so successful and we’re thrilled that the people of Warrington continue top support patient care at the hospice through their very generous donations year after year. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made a booking and a donation and of course would like to say thanks to all of the volunteers who from local businesses who worked so hard on the day- we really couldn’t do it without them all!”
