A Christmas tree collection and recycling service raised more than £2,000 for a Bury St Edmunds-based hospice charity.
St Nicholas Hospice Care’s house clearance team picked up 310 Christmas trees from homes around Bury St Edmunds and surrounding villages.
Through donations for the service, the team of four were able to raise £2,011 for the hospice and all the trees were taken to Culford Waste and recycled at no charge.
Darren Devine, the hospice’s house clearance and retail support manager, said: “Once again we’ve had a good year collecting more trees then we did last year.
“The great thing about this service is that people have been able to support the hospice and at the same time had the hassle of what to do with their real Christmas tree taken out of their hands.”
