In January, St Peter’s Hospice were busy recycling Christmas Trees for charity from 11 Bristol postcodes. They collected over 1,200 used Christmas Trees from Clevedon and Portishead in North Somerset, to Frenchay and Downend in South Gloucestershire. They brought many of these trees to Frenchay Christmas Tree Farm. And here, their brilliant team of volunteers processed and mulched the trees. We spread the mulch on our fields to return carbon and other goodness to the soil. Mulch also helps to retain moisture levels, too.
In the process, they raised over £22,000 for the Hospice. Well done to the team at St Peter’s Hospice! And to all those lovely Bristol folk who signed up to recycle their Christmas tree, thereby raising a considerable sum of money for the charity.
