Wild About Woodlands fundraising total continues to grow

Posted On : 11/02/2021

A fundraising appeal that aims to plant and protect 1,000 trees across the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park has reached an important milestone towards its target of £10,000.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Trust’s Wild About Woodlands appeal will help create new woodland corridors to help wildlife to grow and thrive.

More than £4,000 has been raised so far with help from best-selling illustrator Millie Marotta, who is providing an exclusive colouring sheet for everyone who donates.

The charity’s chair, Elsa Davies LVO said:

“Trees play a vital role is offsetting our carbon footprint and the detrimental impact that we as humans have had on our precious landscape and can also have a positive effect on our health and well-being.

“We are extremely grateful to those who have donated so far and the Trust would like to thank The Greener Camping Club and their members, who have donated 250 local provenance trees toward the project.”

A donation of just £5 could help pay for a new tree to be planted and cared for, while a contribution of £100 could help create 100m2 of new woodland.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Trust is a charity registered by the UK Charity Commission. Its registered charity number is 1179281.
