Rachel Belk (and friends) 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

Well done Rachel, I'm sure the trees will be very grateful that you swallowed half of the Manchester Ship Canal for them. Rhiannon

Add trees to this grove

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
