This month we supported local charity Pilgrims Hospice with their Christmas tree recycling campaign. Managing Director Nick Daynes joined a number of volunteers on the 12 of January to collect Christmas tress from local residents in Ashford, Kent.
Prior to collection day Nick Daynes, said: “Prospect Tree Mortgages are very proud to be sponsoring the Christmas tree collection and and we are looking forward to getting our hands dirty with all the other volunteers when we help collect the trees. Last year we visited nearly 1,000 homes and raised more than £18,000 towards the vital work of the hospice. With your help we can make this another record-breaking year."
We managed to catch up with Nick shortly after collection day, he said:
I'm exhausted but also delighted to have been able to take part in this successful campaign. We collected over 1,200 Christmas trees and in doing so raised approximately £20,000 in donations for the Pilgrims Hospice.
