About this Collection
The 2019 Christmas tree collection was a huge success with many volunteers collecting 1,020 Christmas trees on the weekend of the 11th and 12th January raising a total of £11,724.01.*
This collection has grown in popularity each year and it is thanks to the volunteers and the generosity of local residents who donated to have their tree collected that the collection has grown so quickly.
90% of the monies raised, a total of £10,551.61 went to the hospice with 10% going to the local charity, £1,172.40 Twinkle House.

About the Hospice
Queenscourt Hospice is at the heart of palliative care within Southport, Formby and West Lancashire.
We strive to provide the very best specialist care free of charge to adults reaching the end of their lives, whilst giving vital support and respite to families and carers. We achieve this through a broad range of services within the Hospice, hospitals, patient’s homes and throughout the local community.
We do all we can for those in our care and understand the importance of personal choice, independence and dignity. On average we support over 1000 people every year to live the best possible quality of life and enjoy precious time with their loved ones.
Providing such a high standard of care costs Queenscourt around £4 million each year. With less than 20% of our costs from the NHS, we very much rely on the wonderful support we receive from our community and fundraising activities such as this collection service.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
