Why not let Focus4Hope collect and recycle your tree this January!

For a small donation, we will pick up your tree from outside your home and recycle it for you, it takes the stress and hassle away from you and is good for the environment too!

Our amazing volunteers will be collecting Christmas Trees from Thursday 12th January to Saturday 14th January 2023.
