Many elf-ers make Xmas Tree Recycling a success!


A massive thank you to the hundreds of you who helped us raise a tree-mendous £13,300 in this years’ Christmas Tree Recycling Campaign! This alone could fund a bed on the ward at the hospice for over 22 days!
Special thanks to these special elf-ers:

• The many volunteers who helped make this project by collecting the trees
• Panther Truck Hire for the vans
• Beaver Tool Hire for a truck and chipping half the trees in partnership with Madam Green Farm
• Chichester District Council for all their support
• The Woodhorn Group for taking half the trees to turn into compost and top soils

The following places for supporting on the days with storing trees until they could be recycled:

• The Fishbourne Centre
• Chichester High School
• The Regis School (with help from their students to load trees into a van)
• Barnham Community Hall
• Hills Nursery
