Langley realtor hosts Christmas tree pick-up event Jan. 6 and 7

Donations will go to the BC Cancer Foundation.

Casey Duncan will go the extra mile this weekend, or rather extra miles.

He’s the person behind Chipping Away at a Cure, a fundraiser that involves pick-up service for Christmas tree chipping.

“My event is pick-up only, however, my event is partnered with Field’s Trees,” he explained. “It is Field’s Trees who will be chipping the trees that I deliver to them. Their tree chipping site is set up at Derek Doubleday Arboretum and will be open Jan. 6 and 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. So, if people don’t want their tree picked up from their home by me, they may deliver it there. Both myself and Field’s Trees have partnered with the BC Cancer Foundation and 100 per cent of donations from both of our events goes directly to the foundation. I believe that Field’s Trees accepts on-site donations; however, all donations to my event must be made online.”

Duncan did this fundraiser last year for the first time.

Contact him at 778-847-7653 ASAP to arrange pickup.
