St Richard’s Hospice Annual Christmas Tree Collection Successfully Raises £33,659
February 4, 2020
At the beginning of January 2020, the Rock Power Connections team fulfilled its pledge of support for the annual Christmas Tree recycling scheme, in aid of St. Richard’s Hospice.
Fellow businesses around Worcestershire teamed up to support the initiative, raising an incredible £33,659 - double the total from the previous year.
Volunteers collected trees from main postcode areas throughout Worcester, Droitwich, Evesham and Malvern, with team Rock collecting Christmas Trees from Warndon Villages in WR4.
Reece James, Operations Director, comments: “Every year, the Rock team have great fun volunteering for the St Richard’s Hospice tree collection. In fact, it’s become quite a tradition within the Rock Power Connections’ New Year festivities! The amount raised this year is absolutely fantastic, and is a real credit to everyone involved, not to mention the amazing work St Richard’s Hospice do every single day.”
The Christmas Tree Recycling Scheme was launched in 2016 and whilst helping the Worcestershire community with the post festive clear up, the initiative successfully raises vital funds for the charity’s around the clock care and support of those living with a serious progressive illness.
This marks the fourth year that Rock Power Connections has taken part in the initiative, with the team even managing to beat our own personal record of fitting 16 trees in one van!
St Richard’s is set to run the Christmas tree recycling campaign again in 2021. Details on how to register a tree for collection will be available later in the year.
