Last weekend we helped local charity, Isabel Hospice, raise much needed funds by way of a Christmas Tree Recycling event. An enthusiastic team of MWGM volunteers collected Christmas trees from around the local neighbourhood (in return for a donation) and transported them to a local farm where they were chipped and recycled.
Together with other local businesses, we collected in excess of 850 trees, raising £15,304! This fantastic amount will go towards paying for over 600 hours of specialist palliative care at Isabel Hospice’s in-patient unit.
We were delighted to help this charity especially as the current pandemic has had a huge impact on their fundraising activities during the past year. We will also be donating the money we saved by sending our Christmas cards electronically to this worthy cause.
