Thank you to everyone who booked their Treecycle collection!
Our terrific team of volunteers collected more than 3,200 trees this January, resulting in a total of over £35,000 raised for our hospice, which is a new record! Thank you so much.
The money raised from Treecycle will help us to continue caring for local people and their families living with a potentially terminal illness.
And the good news is, Treecycle will be back in 2021 – with collections taking place from 6th – 13th January!
If you have any queries in the meantime or would like to volunteer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01543 432538.
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!”
