The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust are delighted to launch their first ever ‘treecycling’ campaign which will take place in January 2021.

Christmas is a time of year for family and friends and of course the all-important Christmas tree. We all love a real tree until the time comes to dispose of it after Christmas. Instead of having all those Christmas tree needles in the back of your car, why not ask the Grace Kelly Childhood cancer Trust to pick it up for you?

The areas that the charity will be covering this year are: WR1, WR4, WR9 and B60

In addition, they will also be covering Barnt Green, Alvechurch and the villages local to the charity: Crowle, Upton Snodsbury, Broughton Hacket, White Ladies Aston and Drakes Broughton.

All you need to do is register for a collection and the GKCCT team will pick up your tree on the 6th, 8th or the 9th of January (collection date will be confirmed nearer the time – once you have registered). It is as simple as that!

There is no minimum donation amount for the team to collect your Christmas tree, however a £10 donation could cover the printing and distribution of 350 of our signs and symptoms awareness cards (which could enable a child to be diagnosed with cancer at an earlier stage). A £15 donation could pay for the production and dispersion of 15 of their information booklets that make things a little less scary for children receiving treatment for cancer.

The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust receives no statutory funding so is reliant on their fantastic fundraisers and donors to help them continue their vital work.

Deadline to register your Christmas tree is Monday 4th January 2021 at 12noon. If your tree is over 8ft tall and you wish to book a collection, please contact us in the first instance on 01905 885777 or e-mail: [email protected]

The GKCCT would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has signed up so far to support this campaign.

We still need more volunteers to help so if you can spare some hours or have a vehicle/van that can be used then please call the GKCCT team on 01905 885777.

Covid Secure

Our campaign will run in line with current Government guidelines and our risk assessments will continually be updated to reflect any changes.
