St Nicolas Hospice’s will be running a Christmas tree collection service in the new year.

The initiative, launched last year, will collect festive firs from January 8 to January 12 in the IP28, IP29, IP30, IP31, IP32, and IP33 postcode areas for a suggested donation of £5.

Darren Devine, the charity’s house clearance manager, said: “Last year we had a very busy start to 2017 thanks to our Christmas tree collection service.

“We collected more than 100 trees raising £900 for the charity. We are keen to repeat the success of last year and will offer the service for longer and increase the area we cover.
