Christmas trees are brightening up homes - but have you thought about how to get rid of yours once the festive season is over?
Saint Francis Hospice is inviting people living in Havering to take part in its free Christmas tree recycling scheme, which will see the charity's volunteers come and collect real Christmas trees over the weekend of Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10.
The hospice is working in partnership with JustHelping to offer the service, with all money raised going to support those it cares for.
Head of fundraising Sarah Williamson said: "Last January, we collected more than 1,000 trees across Havering and raised more than £12,000, which helped local people who are seriously ill and in need of our experienced care and support.
“We do not charge for collection but do welcome a voluntary donation if people wish to do so.”
