Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm to Raise Vital Funds
Richard Draycott from Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance cut the ribbon at the weekend to open Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm for the festive season 2016.
The Air Ambulance has been chosen as Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm’s charity of the year with every tree sold resulting in a donation of 20p.
Farm owner Clive Collins is passionate about helping raise funds for the charity as he was airlifted by helicopter after falling out of a tree and injuring his spine.
He said: “My goal is to pay for my ride in the helicopter and another trip – so £5,000 over the next few years”.
Richard Draycott added: “We are very grateful to Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm for their help and delighted they have chosen to support the life-saving work of the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance.”
Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm has been supplying Christmas trees to the Battle, Bexhill and Hastings districts for over 25 years, and the company has one simple philosophy – to provide the best-quality trees in Sussex at the best possible prices. Customers especially like the option of choosing their tree before it is cut. Over the last 25 years, Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm has developed into a one-stop shop for Christmas – providing everything from the tree, to stands, decorations, gifts and bespoke wreaths.
Earlier this year Clive Collins won the Business Personality of the Year award at the JP South Business Awards, following his success at the 1066 Business Awards in July. Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm also won the Best Small Business category at the 1066 Business Awards which celebrated the best local businesses in the Hastings and Rother regions.
