Thanks to you, we've won £25,000 for our trees project!

At the end of last year we asked you to vote for us to win money from the Aviva Community Fund. We were hoping to plant trees and build soft flood defences in Wolverley - but we needed a boost from you to get us going.

We’re excited to announce that we’ve won £25,000!

Trees help to reduce the effects of flooding, whilst also removing carbon from the atmosphere. This project will build climate resilience on both fronts. Planting mixed woodland will also have the added benefit of giving a boost to local biodiversity and wildlife.

Thank you so much for your support. Look out for more updates when the project gets started soon!
