Tree-cycle for Katharine House this Christmas


A number of OX7, OX15, OX16 and OX17 postcodes are covered

For many people the preparations for Christmas are still in full swing, but we’re being reminded of an environmentally friendly way we can organise part of the post-Christmas clear up, whilst raising money for the Katharine House Hospice.

As the festive period comes to a close early in January the Adderbury based hospice can arrange to have real Christmas trees collected in return for a donation.   Acreman’s Arboriculture in Wigginton have agreed to chip the trees at no cost to Katharine House, meaning they will keep 100 percent of the donations made.

The scheme is now in its third year and this year sponsored by the recycling, resource and waste management company Viridor.

It’s available to anyone living in a number of postcode areas (OX7 4, OX7 5, OX7 6, OX15 0, OX15 4, OX15 5, OX15 6, OX16 1, OX16 9 and OX17 3).

Carley Lambert, KHH Events & Challenges Officer, said: “There’s nothing like the smell of a real Christmas tree to get you feeling festive but once the celebrations are over, getting rid of the tree can be a real hassle. We want to help take some of the stress away and raise money for our services at the same time.

“It couldn’t be simpler. Sign up on our website before 10am on 3 January, make a donation to Katharine House Hospice and, in return, we will send one of our elves to pick up the tree to be recycled once the festive season is over. It’s a simple way to support our hospice while ticking something off your to-do list. 

Alan Beaumont, Plant Manager from Viridor’s Ardley site, said: “I’m delighted to be donating to a project like Tree-cycle as it links so closely to our company purpose of building a world where nothing goes to waste, our core value of looking after tomorrow, and supports our wider goals on sustainability.”
