Old Christmas trees have helped Lindsey Lodge Hospice raise vital funds, with help from North Lincolnshire Council.

More than 350 trees have now been collected and recycled as part of the charity’s annual Treecycling scheme.

Residents are asked to make a donation to have their tree collected, with the average being £10.

A council team helped collect and shred nearly 300 trees. The chippings have then been used on various sites across North Lincolnshire.

This is the fourth year of the successful scheme, with more than £4,000 raised.

A Lindsey Lodge spokesperson said: “We’d like to say a big thank-you to the team at North Lincolnshire Council for their fantastic support with our Treecycling scheme this year.

“Their help meant that we were able to collect and recycle over 350 trees from the local community and raise over £4,000.

“The money raised will go directly to caring for our patients and their families when they need it most.”
