A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands
Mr Kite Benefits
23 April 2015

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.

Thanks to all those who supported us with our Benefit with Roddy Woomble on March 16th, 2017 at Hebden Bridge Trades Club. Last time, it was our Benefit with Kris Drever that helped raise the funds. Kris went on to win two awards at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards including Folk Singer of the Year in 2017. So, let’s hope Roddy also gets similar appropriate accolades. Thanks for your support Roddy!

We’ve been to lots of Mr Kite Benefits and have just opened The House of Beer in Ramsbottom, Lancashire. We decided it was a point in time to raise a toast. Here’s to success in our venture and some trees planted to help yours.

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.
