We're back for 2024!
In partnership with JustHelping, we’ll be collecting trees for our annual Christmas tree collection from Friday 12 January until Sunday 14 January in the following postcodes:
BA1, BA2, BA3, BA4, BA11, BA12, BA13, BA14, BA15, SN11, SN12, SN13, SN14, SN15, SN16 and BS31.
Registrations close on Sunday 7 January at midnight. We cannot take further registrations after this date.
We've raised over £274,000 in 7 years of collecting!
The Dorothy House Christmas Tree Collection has been running since 2017 and 2024 will mark 8 years of Christmas tree collecting! In the last 7 years, we have raised an astonishing £274,000 for the Hospice.
…and our 2023 Christmas Tree Collection was a huge success!
Take a sneak peek of last year’s collection here.
Instructions for your tree collection
As we are unable to specify a collection date or time, we ask that you ensure your tree is left in a clearly visible, accessible and unobstructed location outside your property by 8am on Friday 12 January 2024.
Our volunteers are unable, under any circumstance, to enter your property (e.g house, shed, back garden). If we cannot see your tree, we will leave a calling card to let you know we have visited. If you are wishing to have a tree larger than 6ft collected, please ensure you state this upon registration. If you have more than one tree to be collected, we ask that your donation reflects this.
How your donation helps
Wessex Water volunteer support
Will Willoughby from Wessex Water shared with us:
‘‘Having taken part in the tree collection for a number of years now it has become a regular event in the calendar. Not only is it good fun getting out and about meeting plenty of inquisitive members of the public, but it gives a great sense of pride that we can do something quite small, in the grand scheme of things, which in the end has a hugely positive impact. Word is quickly getting round and we are having people trying to sign up to next year already’’.
What are the benefits of my tree being collected?
Buy your Christmas tree from our local partner
One of our amazing Christmas tree collectors has started a new venture selling and delivering sustainably grown Christmas trees in Wiltshire and Somerset. For every tree sold, they will donate £5 back to the Hospice! We think that’s a pretty special partnership.
Please head to ‘Wiltshire Christmas Trees‘ website below to find out the postcodes they deliver to.
