Go green and Treecycle!

We will collect and recycle your real Christmas tree in return for a donation.

Last year, our Treecycle raised over £15,000 to help us care for local people and their families living with a potentially terminal illness. Please help us start the new year on a fundraising high.

Please note we are unable to recycle artificial trees.

For trees over 10ft: please contact the fundraising team on 01543 432538 to arrange a special collection.

It’s not too early – book your collection now!

We can collect from your home or workplace in Lichfield, Walsall, Sutton Coldfield, Tamworth, Burton, Rugeley, Burntwood and surrounding areas.

Strike one thing off your Christmas list and book your tree collection now, even if you haven’t bought your tree yet!

Where to leave your tree

Please ensure that your tree is outside the front of your property in an easily accessible location. Our Treecycle volunteers are not permitted to enter your property, so please do not leave it in an enclosed space such as your back garden or shed. Your driveway or outside your front door is recommended.

Collections will run from 8am and onwards into the evening. Please make sure your tree is in position the evening before the first collection date of Monday 6th January.

Join our Treecycle team!

We need drivers and drivers mates to collect, load and drop-off trees during our Treecycle week (van provided).

All volunteers will be given a breakfast sandwich and a full briefing of your duties for the day. We will provide each team with a list of collection addresses, once the van is full, simply unload at Greener Composting at Wall Island and return to our hospice at Whittington.

To find out more about volunteering for our Treecycle, email fundraising@stgileshospice.com or call 01543 432538.

It takes a community to make a hospice. Thank you.

How your Treecycle donations help

Ian Harding from DHL, is all set to volunteer on the tree collection team for the second year in a row. St Giles previously provided respite care for Ian’s late father.

“My dad had respite care at St Giles which was a huge help to my mum during his prostate cancer diagnosis.” said Ian.

“When he was ill St Giles staff used to pick him up from home and take him off to the hospice for the day. They were amazing. You can’t put a price on the service they deliver and I can’t praise them enough.

“So when DHL asked for volunteers to help out on the Treecycle collections I put my name down straight away. It feels like I am doing something truly worthwhile to thank St Giles for how they helped us as a family.

“I think Treecycle is a fantastic idea and such a good service in return for a donation. I look forward to being out in the van again in 2020!”
