About this Collection
Thank you for your support with our first Christmas tree collection in aid of Myton Hospices and Pass the Smile. We are grateful to all our volunteers and supporters who have helped us with the Christmas tree collection.
The first collection was hugely successful and more than 362 real Christmas trees were collection and recycled between the 9th - 12th January and it has raised £4,121.71 (including Gift Aid and after costs).
Russells Garden Centre is proud to support our charity Christmas Tree collection. They received and shredded all the collected trees, and used them to cover the pathways in their beautiful Quarry Gardens and 'spooky overgrown maze'.
After costs 51% of the monies donated will go to The Myton Hospices’ and 49% will go to the charity Pass The Smile which raises funds for research into childhood cancer in memory of Ben Crowther from Earlsdon, Coventry. Ben (aka Bennis the Menace) was diagnosed with a rare cancer, Rhabdomyosarcoma, in June 2018. Despite the brutal effects of his own chemotherapy treatment Ben tried different ways to cheer up other patients, including telling jokes and pulling pranks on friends, family and the hospital staff. Ben (age 7) gained his superhero wings just a year after diagnosis. Pass The Smile is his legacy.

About the Hospice
At The Myton Hospices we believe that everyone matters for every single moment of their life; we focus on enhancing life when cure is no longer an option. Last year we supported more than 1,800 people and their families, in our three hospices, via our patient & family support services, and in the community through Myton at Home.
We are a charity and we have to raise £9.2 million of the £12 million we need this year to continue providing our services free of charge and we can’t do it without support from people like you.
