Bettys Trees For Life Fund

The Bettys Trees for Life fund has been developed as part of Bettys centenary year activities in 2019 to celebrate Bettys long term passion for trees, to enhance the local environment and improve access to and education about the natural world and green spaces around us.

The fund aims to support groups working to improve local green spaces and wildlife habitats through tree planting project, improved access to woodland and environmental management and education projects. The link between accessible green space and wellbeing is well documented and we are also interested in projects that aim to use environmental activity to promote good physical and mental health.
