Lewis-Manning Hospice Care’s Christmas tree collection and recycling service is back by popular demand, and backed by Patron Harry Redknapp

Lewis-Manning Hospice Care has launched its Christmas tree collection service and is backed by Patron Harry Redknapp and supported by local estate agents Leader Fox. The successful and popular service is in its 4th year and the community are urged to support the hospice once again by registering for their real Christmas tree collection online.

All Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch postcodes are covered, from BH1 – BH23, and collections will take place between 8th – 14th January 2022.

Area Fundraiser Ruth Wright advised, “Remember to book early as there are only a set number of places available, so please register your tree today to ensure you’re not left with a car boot full of needles and twigs! Bookings close on 8th January 2022.

“We are delighted to be able to help the local community again, as well as doing our bit for the environment by running the Christmas tree collection service. Registration online is simple, make a donation to Lewis-Manning Hospice Care on our website and then leave your tree outside the front of your home on the day of collection and we will take care of the rest!”

Lewis-Manning Patron Harry Redknapp said, “Sarn and I know what we’re doing with our Christmas tree this year thanks to Lewis-Manning. I hope lots of other people in the local community also make a donation for their tree to be collected too! They’re such a worthy cause that help so many people in Dorset.  It’s fantastic to know that after Boxing Day we don’t have to worry about what to do with the tree.”

Leader Fox Estate Agents, Director, Katie Fox said, “When we were approached by Lewis-Manning to support this fantastic campaign it was an immediate YES. Not only was it about raising money to aid this wonderful charity but we loved that it was community based, which is where as a business our hearts lie. The Leader Fox team cannot wait to be part of it and working alongside the amazing guys at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care.”

Ruth continued, “We are also very kindly supported by Eco Sustainable Solutions who will be recycling all the trees that we collect and many other local businesses who have offered their help and support again this year.”

About Lewis-Manning Hospice Care
Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is a charity established 29 years ago, providing extraordinary care to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Poole, Purbeck and East Dorset. We offer a range of free hospice care services aimed at helping people to live well through their illness, closer to home.
These include:
– Day hospices, virtual and in person
– Creative arts & wellbeing support
– Lymphoedema clinic for cancer patients
– Better breathing clinic
– Bereavement & Family Support
Every year we support nearly 500 local people and we develop new services, based on patient need and identified gaps in the area.
To do this we need to raise over £1.6m every year. Without these funds we could not exist.
Our important work increases people’s physical and social well-being, reduces isolation and loneliness, supports people to stay in their homes longer, and alleviates the huge pressures on family and carers.
