Throughout January, the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust are running their recently introduced Christmas tree recycling project. This project sees cancer trust volunteers visit homes throughout the local area to pick up unwanted Christmas trees in return for a donation. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions these collections have been conducted following the most recent government guidance to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
The postcodes WR1, WR4, WR9 and B60 are covered within the project and anyone willing to make a donation in return for their Christmas tree being collected can take advantage of the service. Similarly, the Crowle, Upton Snodsbury, Broughton Hackett, White Ladies Aston, Drakes Broughton, Alvechurch and Barnt Green areas are also to be visited.
The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust have suggested there is no minimum accepted donation in return for your Christmas tree. However, the charity says that with a £10 donation they can print 350 symptom awareness cards to help with early diagnosis amongst children. Similarly, a £15 donation funds the printing and distribution of 15 informational resources provided to children receiving treatment, to make the overall process less scary.
Although the first charity collection is coming to an end for this year there may be the opportunity for you to get involved with the collection next year, or other fundraising events throughout the month. For more information, please get in contact with the charity on 01905 885777.
