The temporary traffic management business was back volunteering over the weekend, supporting the Birmingham charity to collect Christmas trees from across the region in exchange for donations to the hospice.

Highway Traffic Management is proud to announce its partnership with Birmingham Hospice for their annual Treecycling event. The initiative, organised by Birmingham Hospice, aims to raise funds whilst promoting sustainability and community engagement during the post-holiday season.

HTM assigned two vehicles to head out across the city, with a list of around 70 trees to collect per crew. “It’s great to support environmentally friendly initiatives that support the local community. We think to think of ourselves as experienced tree-cyclers as this is our fourth year volunteering for the treecycling campaign,” said Health, Safety & Environment Manager, Matt Higgs.

Birmingham Hospice provides specialist end-of-life care for people living with a terminal illness and for their families. Their mission is to give patients and their families precious time together at the end of life to make lasting memories. Donations from those who book their trees for collection help the hospice to go the extra mile for local people living with terminal diagnoses.

Thanks to the support of Acorn Environmental Management Group, the Christmas trees are chipped and then used to create biofuel for local communities, meaning they are being disposed of in eco-friendly way.

Jess Bolton, Community Campaigns and Digital Fundraising Manager for Birmingham Hospice commented, “This year we have had over 220 volunteers working on behalf of the hospice, collecting a whopping 6,200 trees. Thanks to the generosity of amazing supporters and volunteers, this year’s Treecycling event has raised a record-breaking £142,000! We couldn’t do it without our volunteers and it’s great that we can rely on companies such as Highway Traffic Management who support us year on year.”
