Register your tree

After a year’s hiatus, our Christmas tree recycling scheme is back! Working with Justhelping, our collections will be taking place across mid Essex on 7, 8, 9 January 2022.

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who donated and volunteered last year, even though the collections could not take place due to the sudden spike in COVID-19 infection rates in our area.

Register before 12 noon on 4 January and donate online and we will collect your tree from your home.

Your donation will be used to help Farleigh Hospice and other local charities; 90% of the money raised by Christmas tree recycling goes directly to Farleigh, and the remaining 10% is donated to other local charities via the Chelmsford Lions Club.

  • £15.72 could go towards funding a delicious Christmas dinner for one of our patients
  • £20.54 goes towards funding an hour of care in our inpatient unit which is open during Christmas
  • £31.20 could go towards providing a much-needed bereavement support session over the festive period
  • £55.18 could go towards providing a home visit over Christmas by one of our community team

What will happen to my tree?

Your tree will be shredded down into chippings – a majority of will be used for biofuel but some will also be used for park pathways and soft play areas.

Fancy helping?

If you would like to help, we are always on the lookout for volunteers to help. Please call us on 02145 457411 or email
