Christmas is on its way to St Helena Hospice thanks to the generosity of two local businesses.
Between them Boxted-based Fred Smith’s Christmas Trees and Informa, of Sheepen Place, Colchester, are donating six trees to be put up at the hospice’s Myland Hall in Highwoods, and the Tendring Centre in Jackson Road, Clacton.
The trees donated by family-run Fred Smith’s, which has been supporting the hospice for more than 30 years, will be decorated with dedication tags written by people who have donated to the hospice’s Tree of Memories appeal.
Trees donated by Informa are being decorated by hospice staff and will be on display for patients and visitors to enjoy.
Tim Smith, owner of Fred Smith’s Christmas Trees, said: “I’m extremely pleased to continue supporting the hospice.
