Tree sales bring help and support
ONE man plans to work harder than Santa this December as he aims to deliver Christmas trees around the county.
Toby Mynott is encouraging people to buy a tree from him so he can help boost the Kent-based charity, KHoCA, (Kent Handicapped Caring Association) an organisation that helps people with mental health problems. All trees are grade one quality and each sale sees a £5 donation go to the charity.
Mr Mynott said: “A 6ft Nordic fir costs about £60, but I am selling them for £45 - so the reason people should buy one is that they are less expensive, I deliver them to your door and a donation goes to KHoCA.”
Mr Mynott was recently made redundant and yet is putting his time to good use, inspired by friend Clare Cannon who is on KHoCA’s committee.
He said: “The fact is that they really do support all sorts of organisations of different sizes throughout Kent which are trying to make a difference to people with mental health problems.
“The charity is not singleminded focusing on just what it does - it will consider making gifts and giving assistance to any organisation that is looking to support disadvantaged people in that way.”
