Christmas Tree collection raises £4,150 in Hurstpierpoint

Ours readers will no doubt remember how Hurst based resident Paul Wilkinson, who has been running a successful landscaping business for the last 13 years, collected £3,000 for Cancervive, last year, by disposing and recycling our used Christmas trees.

This Hurst based Charity, was set up to offer support to family & friends of cancer sufferers in times of need.  He decided to repeat this service again this Christmas, but splitting the proceeds between two charities: Cancervive and St Peters & St James Hospice. The later being solely reliant on fundraising to run their day to day care for those with life-limiting, or terminal illness.

This year Paul has surpassed himself by collecting an amazing £4,150 for the charities.

He says: “It’s good to be able to give back to the Hurstpierpoint community when I’ve been living here for nearly 30 years”.
