About this Collection
St. Luke's Hospice looks after people living in Basildon, Billericay, Wickford and Thurrock surrounding areas that require our support in their time of need when dealing with a life limiting illness.
January 2020 was the first year for St. Luke's Hospice Basildon & Thurrock starting a Christmas tree collection. They received enormous support from volunteers and local businesses who donated their time and energy as well as their vans to help collect the Christmas trees. Thanks also is due to the Basildon Recycling Depot, Barleylands for allowing them to use their recycling facilities.
The collection which took place between the 11th and 12th January has raised £520.50 (after costs and including Gift Aid). 90% will go to the hospice and 10% will go to the Round Table of Billericay.

About the Hospice
St. Luke’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for people living in the Basildon, Thurrock and surrounding areas including Billericay and Wickford affected by a life-limiting illness. This often means cancer but also includes other illnesses that are no longer curable such as Heart Failure, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and includes caring for people with complex and multi-disciplinary needs. Care and support is offered through our diverse range of services which extends to carers, family members and friends before and post-bereavement.
We are a charity that needs to raise over £5.5 million this year (2019/2020) in order for local people to continue to receive our services. We’re proud to have a large volunteering family of over 250 incredible people, without whom we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.
