Arbor Day UK raises some funds through sponsorship (see our sponsorship page) – but members of our team also carry out charity fund raising for our main charity sponsors – the Arbor Day Foundation (based in the USA) and Mersey Forest (based in the North West of England). This makes our practice more sustainable – by supporting these charities, they can also support us further in our tree planting projects.
CURRENT FUND RAISERS
Dr. Duncan Slater, senior lecturer in arboriculture at Myerscough College, is currently fund-raising for Mersey Forest in a rather demanding way: he is looking to lose 60 lbs in weight before the Arbor Day deadline of the 4th of February 2021. Weighing in at 240 lbs on the 10th of August 2020, he has lost around 50 lbs at this stage (see graph). If you would like to support this charity fundraising effort, please use the GoFundMe link below.
