After offering our services to this good cause for the last 2 years, we have been back out again for a 3rd year, joining #TeamArthur collecting Christmas trees across Cambridgeshire raising money and awareness for the Arthur Rank Hospice and their Christmas Tree collection campaign. QAV staff donated time and vehicles over 3 days at the start of January collecting over 200 Christmas Trees. We collected and recycled in these postcode areas CB1, CB2, CB3, CB4, CB5, CB21, CB22, CB23, CB24 & CB25 (covering Waterbeach and Landbeach) and PE13 & PE15 between 12th – 15th January 2023.
This year 170 volunteers across Cambridgeshire collected 3500 trees, raising over £60,000 for the Arthur Rank Hospice.
Arthur Rank Hospice supports people living in Cambridgeshire with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those in need of end-of-life care. They care for more than 4,100 patients each year at their Hospice in Cambridgeshire, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. Their outstanding care is provided free of charge to patients and their families.
