About this Collection
Thank you for your support with the third Christmas tree collection in aid of the Hospice of St Francis.
Once again, the collection has been extremely successful and much of this is due with grateful thanks to the amazing volunteers, supporter including the Harpenden and St Albans Lions Clubs, the Rotary Club of Hemel Hempstead and Veolia Environmental Services.
This year the final number of trees collected was in excess of 1,032 which was just amazing and this has generated a grand total of £12,632.28 (after costs and including Gift Aid). 90% of which will go to the hospice and the remaining 10% is split across four local charities including the Harpenden Lions, The St Albans Lions, the Rotary Club of Hemel Hempstead and 7 Dwarves Rugby Club.
Everything we do at The Hospice of St Francis is provided completely free of charge, but it costs over £5 million a year to run. Your generosity today will have a huge impact on the care and support we’re able to offer to patients and their families throughout 2020 and beyond. Thank you.
If you have any questions about the collection or our work please get in touch with Lucy Hume in Fundraising by email firstname.lastname@example.org
