You can book your slot to recycle your tree and raise vital funds for the city's hospice now.

Last year more than 600 trees were collected raising over £7,000 for the hospice.

This season, the third time the charity has run the service with their charity partner Just Helping, will see the collection area expanded to include all postcodes from SP1 to SP6.

The trees will be collected by a team of volunteers and then chipped by Ockenden Tree Services based in Woodfalls.

They'll then be recycled as animal bedding at Rose Farm in Hurdcott or composted by Newbourne Farm in Rockbourne.

This year Salisbury Hospice are hoping to raise £9,000.

The charity will also make a donation of 10% (after costs) to Love for Louis, a charity set up to help a Fovant boy born with a rare genetic disorder.
