Gloucester Citizen Reports on FRPs Christmas Tree Campaign.
Follow Up: Don't Dump Artificial Christmas Trees!
FRPs campaign to gather donations of good quality unwanted artificial trees to be re-used and given to families in need, continues.
Last year FRP put out a plea for good quality, unwanted artificial Christmas Trees, with a view to storing them and, working with local partners, distribute them back into the community early December 2015.
It is hoped that this will bring a bit of Christmas cheer to the local community.
Ian Ellis, the charity’s Chief Executive commented “We have over many years developed some amazing partnerships with local organisations and this is a way of bringing those partnerships together for the benefit of the community. For example, some of these organisations provide hampers, food parcels etc. and if we can offer something extra to support our community in having a better time at what can sometimes be a difficult period, then it is something we would like to do."
Almost 50 trees were brought into our shops in the High Street Cheltenham and the Bus Station Gloucester and are ready to begin distribution.
The campaign has been received favourably by the local community and reported in the local newspaper, the Gloucester Citizen.
