ASKHAM BRYAN COLLEGE SUPPORTS CHARITY CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING SCHEME

Date: 4th December 2017

Askham Bryan College is proud to support Teesside Hospice's Christmas tree collection scheme, which aims to raise funds to help care for local people suffering from cancer and other life limiting illnesses. 

Households across the Teesside area are being encouraged to go green this Christmas and help to support their local hospice with this new fundraising initiative. The collection, which is run entirely by volunteers, will take place during the 5th – 7th January 2018.


The collected Christmas trees will then be chipped and recycled by Askham Bryan College and used within the paddocks, walled gardens and kitchen gardens to create new paths at Stewart Park.


Askham Bryan College Director of Stewart Park, Nick Barnes said: “It’s brilliant that the collected Christmas trees will be recycled and used within Stewart Park to enhance the Park, a fantastic local area that will directly benefit from this scheme, we hope everyone gets behind this appeal.”


Teesside Hospice Fundraising Manager, Debbie Coulson, said: “Our Christmas tree recycling scheme is the simplest, greenest and most charitable way to get rid of your Christmas tree after the festive period. Let us take away the stress of disposing of your Christmas tree and help us to raise vital funds for Teesside Hospice. Donations are crucial to the success of this event and to ensuring that we can continue to provide our vital care.”
