The Rotary Club of Longridge and North Preston have organised their annual charity Christmas tree collection across North Preston and the Ribble Valley.


Trees will be collected between the 6 and 7 January by volunteers at the club, and then recycled as part of the Fylde Coast Sand Dunes Project.

The money raised will go to charities and community cases across the local area. Last year they donated over £5,000 to charities such as CRY North West and Red Rose Recovery while in 2022 they raised £2,000 for North West Children’s Support Group.
