O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree…

February 01, 2021

RSK Raw and RSK Asbestos had a busy weekend on 16-17 January supporting the Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice treecycling scheme. The RSK businesses joined forces with almost 200 volunteers to collect and recycle more than 5000 used Christmas trees from across the Birmingham and West Midlands area, which raised an incredible £105,000 for the charity.

Despite the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospice was able to deliver its biggest treecycling collection yet! Since it was launched nine years ago, the fundraising scheme has raised an incredible amount of money for local families living with life-limiting illnesses. RSK Raw has been involved with the initiative since 2015, lending a hand and company vans, with RSK Asbestos joining them last year.

Richard Green from the Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice said: “This year the campaign has raised over £105,000 for towards the care of patients with life limiting illnesses, and their families, in Birmingham and Sandwell, UK. We collected around 5000 trees with 90 vehicles and almost 200 volunteers involved over the weekend, so it was a huge corporate and community effort.

“All the trees are recycled, most as biomass fuel, and during lockdown collecting trees in bulk saved lots of individual journeys to help people stay at home. However you were involved, thank you so much – we really could not do it without you.”

RSK Raw and RSK Asbestos hope to be able to support the scheme again next year.
