St Helena – Christmas Tree-cycle activity

The Tree and Lawn Company, Colchester’s leading Tree Surgeons are delighted to have been chosen to support St Helena with their Christmas Tree-cycle activity, in collaboration with Colchester Borough Council, with tree collections covering postcode regions from CO1-CO9 and CO11.

Lizzie Deed, Lizzie Deed, Corporate Fundraiser at St Helena explained “The Christmas Tree-cycle is an easy way to dispose of your tree once it’s fulfilled its festive duties and you’ll be providing St Helena with much-needed funds at the same time. Every penny will go towards helping local people face incurable illness and bereavement and just £10 could pay for home-cooked meals for a day for someone staying in The Hospice this winter.”

Peter Cannon, Owner/MD of the Tree and Lawn Company, said “As a local business, Tree Surgeon’s, the Tree and Lawn Company are well aware of the immeasurable support that St Helena Hospice provides to families and friends when faced with an incurable illness and subsequently, bereavement.  We are delighted to be invited to participate with their Tree-cycle collections for the 2nd year running and to also be able to donate towards sponsoring this fund-raising event, knowing that this not only benefits the local community but the environment as well.”
