Register here to have your Christmas tree collected
Edit, bookings for our Treecycle event are now closed, thank you.
We are delighted to announce our first ever Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust Treecycle campaign.
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 we are covering this year will be: WR1, WR4, WR9, B60 and B61
In addition, we 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 we will pick up your tree on the 6th, 8th or the 9th of January (we will confirm which day your tree will be collected nearer the time). If possible we would like to request that your Chritmas tree is left outdoors at least 3 days prior to collection to minimalise any possible Covid risks. It is as simple as that!
There is a minimum donation of £5 for us to collect your Christmas tree. This will enable us to cover the basic costs of our tree collection. If you wish to leave a donation to the Trust in addition to the £5 collection charge, this would be hugely appreciated. We are able to claim gift aid on your additional donation if you are a UK tax payer which could make your donation go even further.
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 £20 donation could pay for the production and dispersion of 20 of our information booklets that make things a little less scary for children receiving treatment for cancer.
A £50 donation could be used towards funding a new diagnosis support pack for the families of children newly diagnosed with cancer in Worcestershire. A support pack contains useful items, comfort items and information for these families when they need it most.
The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust receives no statutory funding so is reliant on our fantastic fundraisers and donors to help us continue our 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]
We are also looking for volunteers to help with our treecycling so if you can spare some hours or can donate a van please call the fGKCCT team on 01905 885777.
Our campaign will run in line with current Government guidelines and our risk assessments will continually be updated to reflect any changes.
Thank you so much for your kind support.
We would like to thank Integratech for their kind sponsorship towards this campaign
