Just Helping Christmas Tree Collection for Comberton

JustHelping works in partnership with local charities, hospices, community & volunteer groups to co-ordinate  Christmas Tree Collections nationwide

Christmas Tree Collection – Cambridgeshire – Arthur Rank Hospice Charity (A)
This Christmas Tree Recycling Scheme is run by Arthur Rank Hospice Charity in partnership with  JustHelping and with support from numerous local businesses and members of the community. 

Now in its ninth year, the collection has gone from 400 registered trees to 4000! This generates an income of over £60,000 each year which is invested back into providing support for those going through a tough time.

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or other life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Our ‘Outstanding’ services support approximately 3,600 patients and their families annually helping people to make every moment count.

Your donation will make a real difference to our patients and their families.

What you need to know about this year’s Collection

Our team of volunteers will be collecting trees from Thursday 11 – Saturday 13 January 2024 

In order for us to collect your tree, please register by 11.59pm Sunday 7 January.

We are unable to collect trees above 10ft/3m in height.

Important information

We ask that you put your tree (minus decorations and pots) outside the front of your property, where it can easily be seen by our voluntary collection team, by 8am on Thursday 11 January.

Please note we cannot guarantee what date or time your tree will be collected. We do aim to collect trees in the city centre area first.

Due to Health and Safety policy our lovely volunteers are unable to, under any circumstances, enter your property (e.g. house, garden, gated driveway) or any confined or restricted space to access your tree.

If you would like to volunteer your time to help with 2024’s collection please see further details at arhc.org.uk/tree-recycling or contact the team on 01223 675888 or email @

On behalf of the staff, volunteers, patients and family members at Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, thank you so much for your support.

After costs, over 90% of the funds raised will go to the hospice and the remaining % (up to 10%) will be donated to other local charities.

Great news – the team will be collecting Christmas trees between Thursday, 11 January 2024 – Saturday, 13 January 2024
