WW Martin again supports Pilgrims Hospices with their annual Christmas Tree Recycling Event
We are delighted to again support Pilgrims Hospices with their annual ‘Christmas Tree Recycling’ event, which raises vital funds every year to support end-of-life care for local people.
Two WW Martin ‘volunteer elves’ braved the wind and rain this morning, travelling around Thanet collecting local residents' Christmas trees in return for a donation to the charity.
Once collected, the
trees are taken to local specialist recycling farms, Blaise Farm in West
Malling and Hope Farm in Capel-le-Ferne. They are then composted within a
covered building system and turned into two grades of compost, a 20mm grade
used for agricultural purposes and 10mm grade used as a soil improver for
general composting and landscaping uses within the local area.
The last Christmas tree recycling campaign raised over £57,000 for local hospice care - enough to pay for more than 2,280 hours of specialist nursing care. As always, we are pleased to support such a worthwhile initiative in aid of this vitally important local charity.
Each year, Pilgrims Hospices give care and comfort to thousands of people in east Kent who are coming to terms with an illness that sadly cannot be cured. The charity support patients to live life as well as possible until the very end, free from pain and distress. Make a donation to Pilgrims Hospices here
