Rotary Club of Bishop Auckland continue to develop their Christmas Tree Recycling in partnership with the Butterwick Hospice and supported by G.W. Holmes and Son and John Wade Recycling.
60 Christmas trees were collected from properties in the Bishop Auckland area by two teams of Rotary volunteers. Ian Clark, a volunteer driver for the Butterwick Hospice drove one Butterwick van with John Yeomans and Tony Sanderson as crew. Bill Robson was driver of a G W Holmes van with Nigel Bell and Keith Black as crew. Our thanks go to Lynn Albury of the Butterwick Hospice for coordinating the collection requests. Just over £500 was raised.Both crews celebrated the event with a bacon bun and a mug of tea at the Station Café
