Treecy­cling re­turns for sec­ond year

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

With the end of the fes­tive sea­son, a char­ity is call­ing on peo­ple to dis­pose of their trees prop­erly.

As part of its Treecy­cling scheme, now in its sec­ond year, Ash­ford’s Pil­grims Hospice is ask­ing res­i­dents of the bor­ough to think of the en­vi­ron­ment when get­ting rid of used trees.

For a sug­gested min­i­mum dona­tion of £5, vol­un­teers from the Hythe Road hospice will come and col­lect your tree on the weekend of Jan­uary 11 and 12.

Re­gional fundrais­ing man­ager Nigel Donkin said: “It is great to be able to of­fer this use­ful ser­vice back to those who sup­port us.

“It was a lot of fun last year do­ing our col­lec­tion run.

“The wel­come we re­ceived from ev­ery­one we met was bril­liant, and we’re look­ing for­ward to get­ting out there again.”

Last year’s Treecy­cling round re­sulted in the char­ity re­liev­ing 600 homes of their used trees, rais­ing an im­pres­sive £8,500.
