Recycling Christmas Trees

The school are proud to have facilitated this year’s Christmas Tree collection for St Wilfrid’s Hospice. The event really was a ‘win win’ situation, recycling the trees and raising all important funds for our local hospice. Our Rights Respecting Ambassadors had the opportunity to take part and help load and sort the trees, ready to be taken to be composted.

After the event, we received a lovely note below from Nathan, one of the St Wilfred’s team and we thought our parents, carers and students would like to read it:

Dear Regis School staff and students, thank you so much for supporting our Christmas Trees Project this year. You helped us to recycle over 1,000 trees and raise over £13,300 for hospice care. This project could fund care for a single ward bed for 22 days and we’ve managed to ensure all those trees become useful compost. We are so happy with how the project went and so thrilled that we could bring the wider community together with our amazing supporters and volunteers to provide this service. It was so encouraging to see the students getting involved as well. Without your support this project would have not been able to happen so from the bottom of our hearts

THANK YOU! Warmest regards, Nathan (on behalf of the whole fundraising team at St. Wilfrid’s)
