More postcodes are being included in the collection scheme this year - and there's still time to register.

When we take the decorations down after the festive season, there's that age old dilemma of how to get rid of your real Christmas tree.

Salisbury Hospice is once again stepping in to help, by running their recycling scheme for the 4th year.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Register your tree for collection via the Just Helping website
  • You can also call 01722 416353 to arrange a collection
  • The team can pick up from anywhere in the SP1, SP2, SP3, SP4, SP5 or SP6 postcode areas
  • You have to be registered by midnight on Twelfth Night (6th January 2020)
  • The collections will be made between the 10th and 12th January 2020

The charity asks for a minimum donation of £10 for the service.

Most of that will go to Salisbury Hospice directly, with a portion also going to the Love for Louis charity, which is in support of a Fovant boy who has a rare and serious genetic disorder.

Tamsin Murley, Community Fundraiser at Salisbury Hospice says they can't run the collection scheme without plenty of help too:

POSTCODE EXPANSION

This year for the first time, more postcodes are being included within the scheme.

Tamsin Murley from the charity says they're confident that it'll be worthwhile:

"We think it's acheivable and hopefully people will get on board. People who have done it in previous years have given us great feedback, so I'm sure they will register again. We're just hoping to grow it even further to raise so much of the funds that we need to."

The Christmas Tree collection scheme brought more £7,000 in for Salisbury Hospice, with over 600 trees collected for recycling.
