Volunteers branch out
for hospice charities
Volunteers from Jackson have been out and about in Suffolk collecting old Christmas trees to raise money for good causes.
Householders pledged money to have their old Christmas tree picked up from their home and recycled responsibly. The funds will go to East Anglian Childrens Hospice (EACH) and St Elizabeth Hospice to support their crucial work in the community.
Jackson Civil Engineering was the Suffolk sponsor for this year’s Christmas tree recycling initiative while Jackson colleagues Colin Lambert and Ethan Jones also volunteered their time to travel around and pick up scores of trees from addresses around Woodbridge.
Volunteers from Jackson's sister company, SEH French, visited homes in Felixstowe.

Some of the old trees were dropped off at the Deben Community Farm, which offers therapeutic farming to young people outside the school system. The pines provide a nutritious seasonal meal for the farm’s goats while the branches that are left are used by the farm to make clothes hangers.
The whole initiative saw more than 1,000 trees collected, raising £16,000 in total.
