Anyone who lives in these postcodes can make a booking for collection, which will be on eitherJanuary 4 or January 5 2020.

Nikki Poole, senior community fundraiser, said “We are delighted to be able to offer our Christmas tree-cycling service to even more postcodes this year. It’s a great way to support Willen Hospice, and booking to have your tree collected after Christmas is just one less thing to worry about during the busy festive season.”

Bookings need to be made by midday on 2 January 2020. As this is a fundraising initiative, a donation will be welcomed when bookings are made.

All money raised will directly support the compassionate care provided by Willen Hospice.

The success of the scheme relies on the volunteers and organisations who help to make it possible, including the Parks Trust, MK Council, HW Martin Waste Ltd, Richards & Co, and PJC Tree Care.
