The team of 100 volunteers

Cambridgeshire residents' leftover Christmas trees managed to raise £26,000 for the Arthur Rank Hospice thanks to a recycling collection scheme.

Nearly 2,000 trees were collected by over 100 volunteers across the district, raising money for vital care provided by the hospice.

Those who didn’t live within the collection zones were encouraged to delivery leftover trees to the charity’s facilities where construction supplier Mick George had donated multiple skips and vehicles.

Jon Stump, finance director at Mick George, said: ‘’The logistics of removing large items such as Christmas trees is never an easy one for most. This initiative will be hugely beneficial to many people and the fact that it has yet again raised important funds for a great cause is an extra benefit.’’
