Buy a tree from a Blue Diamond garden centre and you’ll be helping to plant another one in Africa.
Blue Diamond is one of the UK’s leading garden and living centre groups and has just committed to supporting TREE AID. For every tree sold by one of Blue Diamond’s garden centres in England and the Channel Islands, the Group will donate £1 to help us plant another tree in Africa. We will then teach families how to make their trees thrive, giving them a reliable source of food and income.
Blue Diamond Group Managing Director Alan Roper said: “We’re really delighted to be working with an organisation whose belief in the value of trees matches our own. We hope this new sponsorship arrangement will lead to the planting of many more trees both in the UK and in Africa.”
“We believe our customers will find it rewarding to watch their own trees bringing flowers, fruit and wildlife to their gardens, and to remember that their decision to plant a new tree has also brought life-changing benefits to a family in Africa.”
TREE AID CEO, John Moffett, commented: “Our sincere thanks go to Blue Diamond for agreeing to support our work.
“In some of the driest parts of Africa trees can mean the difference between life and death. Cared for properly, they provide fruit, nuts and leaves that feed families, enrich soil so that other crops can grow better, and enable villagers to make and sell tree produce. This brings them money to buy medicines, clothes and school supplies for their children.
“Over the last 29 years our approach has led to the planting of 10 million trees to help half a million people to grow their way out of poverty. With support from donors like Blue Diamond we aim to plant many more.”
