Christmas TreeCycle

Thank you for taking part in TreeCycle!

We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that our Christmas TreeCycle 2021 has raised over £65,000 – another record-breaking year!

Working in household pairs, our terrific team of volunteers have collected more than 4,400 trees this January. Isn’t that TREE-mendous?!

A HUGE thank you to all of our supporters and volunteers for making this event such a success. It’s fair to say that 2020 was a difficult year, but we’re so excited to start 2021 with this wonderful news.

The money raised from Treecycle will help us to continue caring for local people and their families living with a terminal illness.

If you have any queries about your collection, please email our fundraising team on fundraising@stgileshospice.com or call 01543 432538.

Due to the overwhelming response, our volunteers are still working through the last few tree collections. If your tree hasn’t been picked up by Monday 18th January, please do let us know.

Could you join our ‘tree-m’ next year?

Volunteers are crucial to the success of TreeCycle and we’ll need everyone’s support once again next year.

To find out more about volunteering for TreeCycle, or any other fundraising events, please email volunteer@stgileshospice.com.

How your TreeCycle donations help

Rachel Brown and Chloe Ingham took part in TreeCycle last year as part of a team from Wincanton for Screwfix.

Rachel was particularly keen to take part as St Giles cared for her dad at home and looked after a close friend.

She said: “We’ve had a really positive experience with St Giles so my support for TreeCycle is personal. My dad and my friend had incredible care and we’re so grateful.”

She added: “TreeCycle is a simple, easy way to get rid of your real tree after Christmas and it raises money for such a good cause at the same time.

“St Giles is a truly wonderful place. When my friend was in the hospice someone even came in to do her gel nails for her – it meant so much to her that she could still get her home comforts.”
