Weldmar branching out with tree collection

Weldmar Hospicecare will be collecting and recycling real Christmas trees from across Dorset in early January. For a suggested donation of £10, trees can be collected from homes and businesses between Thursday and Sunday, January 7 and 10.

This year, the initiative is being supported by Trinity St. Christmas Trees, whose team will be making the collections in Blandford and Dorchester.

Weldmar volunteers, including a team from Magna Housing, will make further collections in Beaminster, Gillingham, Shaftesbury, and Sherborne. Alaine Harman co-ordinates the project for Weldmar and says: “We are looking forward to helping make the festive clear up that little bit easier once again. We have seen the number of people taking advantage of this scheme increase every year, which is great news because every tree collected means money raised for the end of life care that we provide for patients and their loved ones in Dorset. With all of our other fundraising events cancelled due to covid, the Tree-cycle is more important for us now than ever before.”

Peter Hyde, owner of Trinity Street Christmas Trees, says, “For many years we have supported Weldmar, but this year more than ever, we believe it’s a great time to step up that support to take on the Christmas tree recycling campaign. It has been a tough year for many charities, but Weldmar continue to provide an exceptional service to the people of Dorset, at a time when they need it most.”

Bookings can be made for a January collection of your real Christmas tree at, or by calling the Weldmar Hospicecare fundraising team on 01305 261800.
