  • Christmas Tree Collections

    Christmas Tree Collections

    Booking of collections is now closed

    For the past 12 years St John’s Hospice have collected Christmas trees in the local areas in return for a donation.

    “The whole event is quite good fun as we have many volunteers who go out in all weathers across our areas (From Garstang to Grasmere, Milnthorpe to Settle) they love the great Christmas Tree hunt.”

    Every year they give some of the proceeds to other charities. This year they have chosen 5 local charities to also benefit from this and once again North West Blood Bikes is one of them. We are delighted to have been selected by St John’s Hospice and hope that many of our followers and supporters will help them support us and the other worthy causes.
