Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree (for the fourth year in a row!)
The Rock Power Connections team are proud to announce that we will be collecting Christmas Trees in early January 2020, in support of a recycling initiative that raises funds for St Richard’s Hospice.
Households across Worcestershire can sign up to the initiative, where they can donate to St. Richard’s Hospice in exchange for having their tree collected by a host of volunteers, including the Rock Power Connections team.
This is the fourth year that Rock Power Connections has supported the initiative, which takes the hassle out of the post-festive clean up, whilst raising money for independent charity’s free care and support of those living with a serious progressive illness and their loved ones.
Reece James, Operations Director, explains: “Each year, the Rock team and I thoroughly enjoy taking part in the Christmas tree collection on behalf of St Richard’s Hospice. The post-Christmas clear up can be incredibly difficult for those who don’t have the resources, so we’re always more than happy to help collect with our commercial vehicles!
“We always feel extremely honoured to participate in such a fantastic cause, especially as St Richard’s Hospice does such a phenomenal job for those in need of their services. We hope to contribute to beating the total from 2019’s collection and look forward to working with all other supporters.”
St Richard’s Hospice cares for adults with a serious progressive illness, improving their quality of life from diagnosis, during treatment and to their last days. In addition, the charity looks after people that are affected by their loved one’s illness.
Each year the hospice supports over 3,400 patients and family members in Worcestershire and parts of Gloucestershire and relies on donations like the tree collection initiative to continue their high-quality level of care.
Jayne Sargeant, St Richard’s Hospice Fundraiser, said: “Clearing away a real Christmas tree after the festive season can be a hassle, but this service makes life easier for people because the trees are collected from their own doorsteps. We want to thank the fantastic volunteers who make this possible and who support our care in this way. The Rock Power Team are a fantastic and important part of the campaign.”
Volunteer teams from local businesses will be collecting trees from the postcode areas around the majority of Worcester, Droitwich, Evesham and Malvern, but the Rock team will be focused within the Warndon Villages in WR4.
