ST Luke's Hospice will be collecting Christmas trees in return for a donation again in January.

Registration is now open for the service, which will see volunteers collect the trees on January 11, 12, 13 and 14.

The collection is environmentally friendly and hassle free, and last year it helped to raise £25,000 for the hospice.

Jane Thompson, head of event management at St Luke’s, said: “Our Christmas tree collection service is one of our biggest annual sources of income.

“I know it’s always hectic for people in the run up to Christmas but if you could take just a few moments to register your tree it’ll really help us to start working out routes.

"The earlier people register their trees for collection, the earlier we can determine demand and ensure we have enough volunteers to cover the routes.”

The Hospice works with a large team of volunteers from the Rotary and Round Table, SP Energy and Melody Corporation, and they are also supported by Reaseheath College, Cheshire East Council, Girl Guiding Cheshire Forest Pettypool, Holmes Chapel and Goostrey Scouts and Ansa, covering the majority of CW postcodes.
