|PESTO AT THE DICCONSON ARMS BACKS CHRISTMAS CARD RECYCLING WITH DONATION STATION
As the last of the mince pies are digested and the Christmas clean up commences, Pesto at the
Dicconson Arms is helping local people put their old Christmas cards to good use with a recycling
station at the restaurant throughout the month of January.
With the special donation station, customers in Wigan can tidy up and do good in the process by
turning their festive waste into woodland. The restaurant is supporting the M&S Christmas card
recycling scheme with the Woodland Trust and hoping to make it easier for its customers to donate
with the local collection point.
Customers are encouraged to take their cards to the restaurant at Appley Lane North, Appley
Bridge or send them along with friends or relatives. This simple act will help create habitat for
All donated cards will be taken by the restaurant to a local M&S where money generated through
the recycling scheme will fund the planting of new trees throughout the UK. One tree will be
planted for every 1,000 Christmas cards handed in, so every card counts. Since 2012 more than 32
million cards have been collected and 32,000 trees have been planted.
Natelle Scott, General Manager at Pesto at the Dicconson Arms said: “We are delighted to be taking
part in this year’s recycling campaign. It’s a simple way for us to join this worthy cause and at a
time of year when the focus for lots of people is on giving back. We hope that our donation station
will make it much easier for our customers to get involved.”
Drop your cards off with the restaurant by the 28th of January and help the Woodland Trust keep our
countryside beautiful and wildlife-rich into the future.
