About this Collection
We will be collecting trees in PE27, PE28 and PE29 from the 11th - 12th January 2020.
Don't leave it too late. Register your tree by 4pm on Tuesday 7th January.
None of this would be possible without the support from local businesses and our fantastic volunteers who kindly give up their time over the weekend of Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th January. The Christmas trees will be collected, chipped, recycled and used for compost.

About the Hospice
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. Our aim is for every child and family to receive exceptional medical and emotional support throughout their journey and, where applicable, in bereavement.
This year we estimate just 16% of our total costs will come from Government bodies. For EACH to continue providing free specialist medical and emotional support, we rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income. We need to raise over £5,600 per day, per hospice to enable us to continue providing this vital support. With your donation and support, together we can make a difference.
You’re the reason we’re able to continue to care for and support children, young people and their families living with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.
