Following the success of its charity Christmas tree collection at the beginning of the year Lichfield tree surgeons Lichfield Treeworks Limited are repeating the fundraiser in the new year.

The firm is expanding its collection and is hoping to raise more than the £1,400 it collected for St Giles Hospice back in January.

From 2-9 January 2016, the firm will be collecting peoples real Christmas trees from their homes and places of work for a suggested donation of £5.

Company director, Nick Meade said: “In past years, I have had old Christmas trees sitting in the garden until the summer, and I’m a tree surgeon, so I know other people have the same problem of either getting Christmas tree needles in their car or sitting behind a shed somewhere – we can solve that problem for people, whilst contributing to a fantastic cause.

“The response from people last year was amazing, and it was an invigorating way to start the New Year.

“Due to the fact that we are building a framework for this event to grow year on year, we are looking for any help that people can give us, which can be in the form of volunteering to put leaflets out, helping collect trees, or helping at the tree drop-off points in Lichfield.

“The other way that we could really use some help, would be if any vehicle hire companies have vehicles like Luton vans (without tail lifts) for trees to be collected in.

“There is a limit to how many trees I can collect myself, so we will need multiple vehicles to do the job.”

“Please contact us before Januray 2 either to register to have your tree collected or if you want to volunteer or can help in any other ways.”
