Our mission is to inspire and support people, businesses, charities and other organisations to contribute and volunteer in their local communities. Our main event is the Charity Christmas tree collection which is a fun community event which takes place after Twelfth Night.

We work together with hospices, businesses and volunteers to collect and recycle real Christmas trees and raise money for hospices and other local charities. 

Registration for the Christmas tree collection in January 2020 is OPEN!

Who We Support

We work in close partnership with hospices and other charities throughout the UK who help us co-ordinate the tree collections. We love recycling real Christmas trees because it engages a large number of volunteers and organisations in contribution and encourages people to donate to valuable community charities.

Hospices play a vital role in our communities and we are proud to support them as a major beneficiary of the funds raised.

About Us

JustHelping is a UK charity founded in 2012 with a vision to inspire and support people, businesses, charities and other organisations to contribute to their community. 

We organise fun community events that provide a platform for volunteering and fundraising for local charities. JustHelping is developing a network of volunteer teams across the UK.  

JustHelping is governed by the Trustees who volunteer their time to help direct the work of the charity. The charity employs a full time Chief Executive, a small administrative team and volunteers who are a vital force behind our work throughout the year. Our vision is for a life where community is at the heart of our society. A life where people pull together to take care of the vulnerable and less fortunate, together with their environment, in their towns and villages.
