Christmas Tree Collection Dorset

Treecycle Initiative Overview

Our Treecycle initiative is once again kindly supported by locally-run Trinity St. Christmas Trees, who will be making the collections on Weldmar’s behalf, alongside Weldmar volunteers, and helping to dispose of the trees in an eco-friendly manner.

Fiona Hansford, Fundraising Lead at Weldmar, says the money raised will make a significant difference for those who need the charity’s care. She says, ‘This will be the sixth year of running Weldmar’s Christmas Treecycle, and each year it has grown, every donation for every tree collected means that we can continue to provide specialist care for adults in Dorset living with a life limiting illness, and support for their loved ones. I’m looking forward to going out and helping with the collections again this year.’

Tamzin Hyde from Trinity St. Christmas Trees, says ‘As a local Dorset based Christmas tree grower and retailer we are delighted to be partnering on this scheme with Weldmar once again. Last year was a record year and we were able to collect over 1200 trees, which raised an amazing £12,500 for the charity, this will make an incredible difference to people across Dorset. Weldmar are a great charity we are pleased to support and this is a fantastic scheme, supporting our local community, that we are extremely proud to be involved with.’
