About this Collection

2019 was the third year for the Christmas tree collection and was the best year yet with more than 800 trees registered for collection raising £8,856.25.*

The real Christmas trees were collected by a team of staff from the hospice and local volunteers totally 100 people. The hospice were very grateful to all who give up their time to help the Charity and the businesses who donated their vans on the day and those who managed the recycling process. Special thanks also to H&H Reeds Printers who sponsored the collection.  

90% of the monies raised went to the hospice, £7,970.63 and 10%, £885.63 was donated to the following local charities:

  • Lions Club of Penrith
  • Lions Club of Keswick
  • Rotary Club of Carlisle

The hospice is very grateful for every donation which will make a huge difference to the lives of local patients and their families during a difficult and devastating time. All care is provided free of charge and the charity relies on donations to ensure the service is available when required.
