Hospice will be helping people even more this Christmas by offering to collect their Christmas trees for recycling in a newly launched initiative.
For this first year of the new scheme the service will be offered to people living in the post codes of IM1, IM2, IM3, IM4 and IM8.
The charity will be available to collect trees from January 6 to 12, and although it is a free service, a donation of £5 per tree is suggested.
The trees will then go to Ballaneven Compost in Peel to be turned into compost.
Mary Doyle, public relations and marketing manager at Hospice Isle of Man, said: ‘We are delighted to be offering people a helping hand this Christmas, helping the environment and raising funds for the local charity.
‘Eighty per cent of money raised will go to Hospice Isle of Man with the rest going to other local charities.’
The children’s hospice, Rebecca House, along with other children’s charity, Oskar’s Dreams, will be among the other local charities to benefit from the scheme.
