Add to this grove

Hi all,

I used to swim when a teenager, but haven't swum regularly for over 20 years. I must be slightly mad for having said yes to joining a group of friends planning to do the Great North Swim, but it's going to be an interesting challenge! We're raising money for a whole range of charities and I would be very grateful if you would support Trees for Life, a charity I've felt strongly about for at least 15 years. I love the idea of a grove that can expand with time - and we can go and visit it in the future if we want!

Thanks everyone.

Love Rachel x
