Think charity when buying Xmas trees


Caring Christmas Trees is the gift that keeps giving

Scottish homelessness charity, Bethany Christian Trust, is asking festive shoppers to help people without a home this winter by purchasing a Caring Christmas Tree.

Caring Christmas Trees has been running in Scotland for over 16 years, selling over 3,000 trees last year and raising an incredible £47,093 towards Bethany’s work helping people in need across Scotland.

Priced from £40 and sustainably grown in West Lothian, shoppers can buy a Grade One Nordmann fir tree to add festive warmth to their home this Christmas.

All proceeds from this social enterprise go towards providing outreach, drop-in support, shelter, befriending, new opportunities and professional support to thousands of people during the harsh winter months.

Alasdair Bennett, chief executive at Bethany Christian Trust, said: “For many people in Scotland the harsh realities of a lonely and cold hard winter are the only outlook at Christmas.  

“Please consider buying a Caring Christmas Tree this year as all the money raised sustains Bethany’s lifeline services to support families and individuals in desperate need. Make someone’s day by buying a Caring Christmas Tree.”
