Time is running out if you want to recycle your Christmas tree and help a Huddersfield hospice raise a record £20,000.

The Kirkwood is looking to collect a record-breaking 2,000 Christmas trees this year, beating the 1,700 it recycled in 2022.

The Kirkwood will come and collect your real Christmas tree in exchange for a donation of £10.

The last day to sign up and register is Sunday January 8. The service is available in the following postcodes HD1, HD2, HD3, HD4, HD5, HD7 4, HD7 5, HD8, HD9 (exc HD9 2), BD19, WF13, WF14, WF15, WF16, WF17.

The Kirkwood’s events manager Katie Fielding said: “Next week we will be collecting and recycling real Christmas trees across Kirklees to raise money for The Kirkwood.

“All Christmas trees are recycled and reused in communities across Kirklees, so by booking your tree to be collected by us, you not only save yourself the hassle, but also support The Kirkwood and help the environment too.

The Kirkwood volunteers want your Christmas tree!

“This year we have been overwhelmed by the support we have received from local businesses and volunteers, meaning we have capacity to collect over 2,000 trees!

“Registrations are going well but we would love to collect as many trees as possible to keep all of our volunteers busy, to raise as much as possible and come together as a community.

“It would be great for us to collect over 2,000 trees which would raise over £20,000 for The Kirkwood.”

Chippings from the recycled trees go to local sports complexes, gardens and community facilities.
