As part of our 90th Anniversary celebrations we are pleased to announce that we are calling for grant applications to our Community Tree Planting Programme for UK and Africa.
In the UK grants of up to £1,000 are available for community tree planting projects and we will be looking to support at least one project from Gloucestershire. Previous projects have included urban based planting to regenerate heritage woodland orchard for the benefit of wildlife and to create access to trees for disabled children as well as planting hedgerows around a whole village.
For Africa grants of up to £3,000 are available for one year projects which will plant at least 10,000 trees per every £1,000 of funding. The programme will support community scale projects which will include conserving and restoring indigenous forest resources and biodiversity and improving food security and local livelihoods through the sustainable use of trees.
These grants have been made possible through our new partnership with the Gloucestershire based business Worktop Express®
Projects need to start between 1st January and 1st April 2015. The deadline date for applications is 17th October 2014 and the decisions will be announced on 28th November 2014. Application guidelines and forms can be download here.
