Sue Ryder will run a Christmas Treecycling service in January 2023, in partnership with Nene
Valley Tree Services, Safe Local Trades, and DHL.
The green initiative will see people able to sign up and have their Christmas tree collected
from their homes between Saturday 7th and Tuesday 10th of January 2023. It will cover those
who live in the PE1, PE2, PE3, PE4, PE5, PE6 7, PE7, and PE8 postcodes.
An online donation is welcomed in return, which will help Sue Ryder, which runs Sue Ryder
Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough, to continue to offer its care and support to people
with life-limiting conditions and their loved ones.
Not only will it raise vital funds, but Treecycling offers a green solution to the problem of
what to do with your tree after the Christmas festivities have ended.
After the Christmas trees have been collected from people’s homes, the team at Nene
Valley Tree Services will chip them down into mulch.
This will then be donated to local deserving sites such as the grounds of Sue Ryder Thorpe
Hall Hospice and donated to local farms, both reducing landfill and supporting local
The team at Nene Valley Tree Services has been supporting Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice
through Christmas Treecycling since 2018. Since then, the scheme has grown and raised
more than £14,000 for families needing care.
Andrew and Lucy from Nene Valley Tree Services said: “We are pleased to announce we are
preparing to support Sue Ryder’s Treecycling project once again. Christmas trees that have
served their purpose can often end up people’s back gardens for months after the festive
season is over – this is a green and practical solution which also raises vital funds for charity.
“Last year, we managed to raise over £7,300 for the charity thanks to all our wonderful
customers, and some help from good friends and fellow business owners – including some
from Safe Local Trades. We are determined to help make Treecycling in January 2023 bigger
and better than ever before – make sure you don’t go anywhere else for your Christmas tree
Helen Kingston, Community Fundraiser at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, added: “Each
Treecyling donation will help to ensure our charity can continue to be there when it matters
and fill people’s last days with love. We are so grateful to everyone in the local community
who has supported Treecycling over the past four years. A special thank you to Andy, Lucy
and the team at Nene Valley Tree Services – their tree-rific support helps to make Treecycling
happen and we are blown away by their dedication to raising more and more funds for our
compassionate care. A big thank you also to Safe Local Trades for their kind support.”
