Christmas is over, the decorations are down and we’re all back to work with a bump. But for two of the Kimpton team, just taking their tree to the tip wasn’t enough. They joined a team, made up of 15 other businesses, to collect those used and unwanted Christmas trees, to raise money for the wonderful Nightingale House Hospice in Wrexham.
“Sam Amis, Community and Events Fundraiser from Nightingale House Hospice, speaking about the scheme said “We have raised over £5,500 for patient care at the hospice and collected in over 700 Christmas Trees! As this is the first year we have hosted a tree collection we are absolutely delighted by how successful it has proven to be and none of that would have been possible without your help! So thank you.
In total there were 16 businesses that helped us on the day. Some collected the trees, some were our drop off points, some allowed us to use their premises for a start off point and some offered food for our volunteers. The support we have received from the community is fantastic!”
Scott Bennett from Kimpton, along with Steve Loughran were the willing volunteers.
“It was actually great fun. A bit of an early start for a Saturday, but it was so well organised it was all worth it. We collected 39 trees before we headed home. The whole route was planned and with a full load, it was back to Mold to drop them off for recycling. To hear they raised that much money is amazing and I’d definitely do it again.”
The trees collected are all going to be properly recycled. They are often shredded into chippings which are then used locally in parks or woodland areas. This was managed by Ash Waste, Clifford Jones Timber in Ruthin and Thorncliffe in Mold.
