Can you help Longfield’s festive appeal?


Longfield Community Hospice in Minchinhampton has launched its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Campaign, where, for a donation, volunteers will pick up your tree at the end of the festive season and take it to be recycled.

The hospice needs volunteers with vans to collect Christmas trees from Sunday 9th to Tuesday 11th January 2022.

Can your business volunteer the use of vans and staff teams to collect the trees, or are you a local person with a van who can get involved?

This year, the Longfield fundraising team hopes to raise in excess of £36,000. In previous years, as many as 2,700 households from across Stroud District, Cirencester and Gloucester have taken part. All money raised helps to fund the hospice’s vital work supporting patients, families and carers across Gloucestershire.

Claire Ellis from Longfield, who manages the campaign, said: “This year we’re calling on local businesses and volunteers to support us once again. We’re determined to collect more trees than ever before, and we need you to help us do that!

“Volunteers play a huge part in the success of our fundraising campaigns; we really can’t thank them enough. Please support our Christmas Tree campaign and help patients and families get vital care and support, this Christmas and beyond.”

To volunteer, please contact the fundraising team on 01483 886 868 or email Claire.ellis@longfield.org.uk
