Stagecoach CNL help Hospice at Home with their Christmas Tree Collection

08 Jan 2020

How many businesses does it take to collect 1,134 Christmas trees?

Stagecoach CNL show support for Hospice at Home by assisting in their annual festive fundraising initiative, with members of the CNL team donating their time to collect and recycle Christmas trees across Carlisle. A whopping 1,134 Christmas trees were booked in for collection in the Carlisle and Northern Lakeland area but, with a number of local businesses and community groups doing their part, many hands made for light work. 


Interested in supporting the initiative next year? 1280x960

The process is simple. Supporters book their tree in for collection via the event website   ( and make a donation of their choice to Hospice at Home. On a select day near the beginning of January, the charity team and volunteers will tour the area, collect the trees and take them to be recycled locally.   

No trips to the tip or needles in your car – just leave the trees in your front garden or outside your property and Hospice at Home will do the rest! 

The Charity hope this initiative will raise great funds to enable their Clinical Team to continue to provide a vital service in the North and East of Cumbria.
