Book Now To Ensure Your Christmas Tree Collection With Trinity Hospice

Fylde Council is collaborating with Trinity Hospice once again this festive season to provide doorstep collections of real Christmas trees

Residents can now visit the Trinity Hospice website to book a collection for January 12th, 13th or 14th 2024 in exchange for a charitable donation. Here is the link to the collection website:

Last year volunteers collected a total of 798 trees from Fylde households, raising £16,895 in donations for Trinity Hospice. These trees were then planted on St Anne’s Beach between Jan 30th to February 1st as part of an ongoing sand dunes restoration project. The trees help to reduce the erosion of the dunes which provide a unique habitat for plants and animals, and act as an effective soft sea defence for the community.

Cllr Michelle Morris, Fylde Council’s Lead Member for Customer & Operational Services, said: “We’re delighted to be able to partner with Trinity Hospice once more to deliver this service to Fylde residents. Not only do the collected trees go to help strengthen the singular ecosystem of the sand dunes, but everyone who donates will be supporting a beloved local charity to whom many of us owe a great debt of thanks for their kindness and care.”

“If you would like to book a collection, or if you are able to volunteer and help with the collections, visit the Trinity Hospice website to find out more.”

Residents can also take real Christmas trees to the local drop-off points between 3rd and 14th January at either North Beach Car Park in St Anne’s or William Segar Hodgson Park in Kirkham.

Lytham Household Waste Recycling Centre will also be able to accept trees, and residents should check the Lancashire County Council website for their opening hours.
