Record breaking amount raised for Tree-tastic campaign

Written by

Whilst we may have moved to a new office and have a new Bromsgrove postcode, that won’t stop #TeamRock participating in the St Richard’s Hospice Christmas Tree Collection. 

For the last 8 years we have supported this incredible charity by taking part in the Christmas Tree Collection, raising tremendous amounts of money and making a huge difference in helping St Richard’s to continue to fund care for patients and their loved ones.

Every year, St Richard’s Hospice work with volunteers from local businesses and the community to put this campaign into action, and last year’s campaign raised a fantastic £47,500.

And this year, is no different, with the statistics for the St Richard’s Hospice Tree Collection for 2024;
2 days of British weather 🌨️
15 postcode areas  
84 teams of an incredible 185 volunteers 👨👩‍🦰
2,560 Christmas trees collected 🎄

A RECORD BREAKING £50,183 raised💰

This Christmas Tree Collection would not happen each year without the wonderful supporters who give up their time to help the charity collect, chip and recycle thousands of trees.

Emma Chetwynd Jarvis, EV Charging Director for Rock Power Connections, commented:

“This is the eighth year that the Rock team have supported St Richard’s Hospice and we look forward to it every year.

It’s such a great campaign organised by the Hospice.  My colleagues and I had a great time supporting the initiative as you can see from the pictures and we look forward to supporting St Richard’s Hospice with their Christmas Tree Collection in 2025.”
