Christmas Tree Throwing Competition

21 . 12 . 17

On Saturday 6th January, we invited customers to come along and join us for an extra special Christmas tree recycling event with a twist!

We asked customers to bring along their Christmas trees to take part in our Christmas Tree Throwing Competition to help raise money for local charity, Andover Young Carers.

On the day, 25 adults and around 60 children took part in the event and the winning throw in the under five feet contest was 9.58m with the winning throw in the over five feet category 7.80m. These lucky winners won a free tree for next Christmas and an Afternoon Tea for Two voucher to spend in store.

Henry Atkinson who ran the event said: “Tremendous enthusiasm was seen from many families taking part on the day, including a contingent of Army personnel who came along. It was a fantastic event and all who entered really enjoyed themselves, with many expressing they’re already planning on coming along next year to throw and recycle their tree!”

Take a look at some of the tree throwing in action in our short video from the day.

We are already looking forward to next year’s event!
