Mr Kite Benefits started putting together fundraising live music events in 1997 when a group of friends in North West England shared their passion for music. To this day, it maintains a simple approach of organising a handful of concerts over the year with each raising funds for different charities. The latter are selected on a basis of being local to Mr Kite Benefits in Lancashire; in response to a major disaster; or a personal connection with the organising team and/or the artist appearing. Since its inception, Mr Kite Benefits has raised over £100,000 for a range of charities.
Trees for Life was selected as a good recipient of their efforts after one of the Mr Kite Benefits team saw an inspiring talk at a conference by founder, Alan Watson Featherstone. Many of the team have connections to Scotland via relatives or happy memories of holidays and are pleased to be involved in this way.
Where indicated, you’ll see that we add trees based on the concerts that we have organised for this purpose. However, we more than welcome any friends who wish to plant a tree or two with us. Thanks to you if you choose to do this.
