Essential info

When will the collection take place?

We will start the collection at 9.30am on Saturday 6th.

What is the last date to book my tree?

Please book your tree by Thursday 4th January to make sure your tree is included in our collection.

Where should I leave my tree?
Place your tree where we can easily spot and collect it as we drive past. Make sure it is in position before 9.30am on Saturday 6th January. Please make sure your tree is not on public pavements or roads where it may pose a hazard to pedestrians.

Can I book my tree to be collected at a certain time?
I'm afraid we cannot give a definite time for collection. We collect a huge amount of trees with a small number of volunteers who work through their routes over the course of the day. Most of the trees will be collected on Saturday with some spilling over onto the Sunday.

My tree hasn't been collected?

If your tree hasn't been collected by 5.00pm on the Sunday then please give Paul Firth a ring on 01507 602298 or send a message using the Contact Form.

What happens to my donation?
All the proceeds from the collection go to charity. We keep our expenses to the absolute minimum with lots of volunteer help and support from local business. The scheme ends up being a highly efficient fund raising project and is a good way for Rotarians to lose a bit of weight after the excesses of Christmas! This year the funds will be passed on to St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospices and other carefully selected local charities.

Severe Weather

We have never had very bad weather over the collection weekend or certainly not poor enough to stop us. We're a hardy lot! But there is always a chance that some very, very severe weather might hamper us (deep snow, floods, plagues of frogs). If we do need to postpone the collection, we will contact you and arrange a new date.
