This holiday season, BNS is delighted to embrace the spirit of giving by volunteering for the St Peter’s Hospice Christmas Tree Collection service.
As a local charity providing care and support to those with life-limiting illnesses in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, and North Somerset, St Peter’s Hospice holds a special place in our community.

Frequently Asked Questions
What areas does the Christmas tree collection cover?
The collection includes various postcodes covering Bristol and its neighbouring areas. Check if your postcode is in the list provided on the St Peter’s Hospice website.
Why is my postcode not on the list?
The Christmas tree collection relies on volunteer support, limiting the service to specific postcodes. St Peter’s Hospice hopes to expand its collection areas in the future.
How many Christmas trees can I leave out?
Each household can request collection for up to 5 Christmas trees, with a suggested donation of £15-20 per tree.
How big can my Christmas tree be?
If your tree is over 6 feet tall, please indicate this when making your donation.
Do I need to be at home on collection day?
No, you don’t need to be home. Ensure your Christmas tree is visible outside your house by midnight on Thursday 4th January.
What happens to the Christmas trees after collection?
Rest assured that your Christmas tree will be fully recycled. It will be shredded and repurposed for various uses, from providing biomass fuel to supporting animal sanctuaries.
How does having my Christmas tree collected help the Hospice?
The donation you make for the collection directly contributes to supporting patients and their families facing challenging times. Your contribution can fund vital services, such as nursing support on the 24-hour Advice Line or providing bereavement support for families.
