The Charity Christmas Tree Collection...

NOW CLOSED FOR 2014 BUT WATCH THIS SPACE FOR THE 2015 COLLECTION

The 2014 collection has been a huge success and thank you to everyone involved.

We are currently making applications for the gift aid but we anticipate raising approximately £13,000 for charities, the vast majority of which will go to the local hospices for the collection area/s (see below).

We have decided to leave the text below to give indication of what the event is all about and how it works, it is simple and it is a great event to be involved with....it's like a treasure hunt for the collection team/s. If you would like to know more then please contact us via the 'contact us' tab above.

Best wishes to all from the Just Helping Charity team ............................................................................................................................

Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice (Liverpool)

We had fantastic feedback from everyone who registered their tree for collection last year (January 2013 collection) and we hope to collect hundreds or even even thousands of trees again this year.

This is up to you so please register your tree for collection now, the more the better!

This charity event raises a lot of money for the Hospices and other local good causes. It is also a 'great fun event' for the collection teams.....it is like a treasure hunt!! To undertake the collections we need collection teams in those areas so can you help?.....without volunteers we will not have a collection!

If you think you could help then please get in touch using the contact us section on this website. The collection areas are in the very large areas of the hospices noted above. This is a great event for volunteers and we work hard to ensure your donated time is spent working within a friendly team and having good fun so please get in touch. Thanks again from the Just Helping team and don't forget to register your tree for collection!


The 2014 collection is in association with:

Collection areas

We are collecting from most of the postcodes in each of the hospice areas, these are huge areas so there is a good chance you can support this event by registering your tree.

We really hope that we can collect your tree but in the event that we are not collecting in your area you will automatically be told at the time you put in your postcode - but even doing this might help us in the future!

We hope to rapidly expand the collections in future years to cover other locations in the country with the ultimate aim to develop national coverage for the tree collection. To achieve this we will gather information from ever postcode entry so even if your address is not covered this year we will use the information to help us target the growth of the collections in the future. So please register or event try to register and help us make this year's collection and future collections a resounding success.....remember it's all for charity.

Suggested minimum donation

The suggested minimum donation for each tree is £5.00 and we are able to collect more than one tree from each address if you wish. Please indicate any additional trees you may have when you register.

The date of your tree collection

Due to the unpredictable number and locations of trees to be collected we can only state at this time that your tree will be collected between the dates indicated for your collection area.

All we ask is that you leave the tree in a safe and prominent place so that we can collect it easily. Please leave any additional instructions about the location of the tree when you register with your address information. This could be something like ...next to the garden gnome in the front garden!!! or the right hand side of the drive, next to the front door etc. this information will help us find your tree easily. But dont forget to put it out!!

Making a larger donation

If you would like to donate more money than the minimum £5.00 donation then we would be delighted to receive this money on behalf of the charities and good causes, please simply adjust the donation amount indicated in the donation box and thank you on behalf of everyone.

Bad weather planning

The collection is planned to be carried over the dates indicated but should the weather "conspire" to prevent us from collecting over this period we will collect your tree/s as soon as practicably possible. We will put information on this website should this happen.

In addition, should we receive a fantastic response from the residents within the collection areas we will extend the collection dates and will again notify you about this via this website. Please be assured, we will aim to collect your tree as soon as practicably possible.

Feedback

Please use the contact us tab and let us know your thoughts on any aspects of the collection, we need to know what you think so that we can continually improve what we do and how we do it. We are aware that this takes a little effort but it is so very important to us at Just Helping so as requested, please take time to let us know what you think.....thanks in anticipation from Just Helping and the wider collection teams for any feedback you provide.
