Christmas Trees Raise Money for Lewis-Manning Hospice Care
A forest of former Christmas trees was reduced to re-useable green waste after being collected by staff from local charity hospice, Lewis-Manning Care.
The arboreal leftovers were taken to Eco Sustainable Solutions in Parley, Dorset, which processed them without charge.
Those who had their trees collected made a donation, which benefited the charity to the tune of £1,600.
In total, 1.86 tonnes of Christmas trees were processed at the plant that is the UK’s leading purpose-built site for organics recycling and renewable energy.
Eco often assists charities and Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is a long-standing organisation that provides extraordinary hospice care for patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families, in Poole, Purbeck and East Dorset.
Vanessa Howden-Smith who collected the trees with her partner Steve Pudwell from KMA Shot Blasting said: “It was the second year Lewis-Manning Hospice has offered this service and there was massive interest.
“We were able to go and pick up people’s trees in exchange for a donation and we’re very grateful to Eco Sustainable Solutions for processing them all.
“Next year we are hoping to make the service much bigger and raise even more money.”
Bryony-mai Hammond from Eco said: “It was an absolute pleasure to help the charity dispose of the trees.
“And the good thing is that they were all reduced to compost that will be used to grow more plants.”
