Charity begins at home …
March 2023: Brampton-based charity Creating Nature’s Corridors is making fantastic progress in smashing its target of planting 10,000 trees and hedges in 2023, with 6,558 due to be in the ground by the end of March across nine locations in the UK.
Kicking off with supporting the local community, the charity has been busy providing and planting trees and hedging plants in the Huntingdonshire Woodlands Cancer unit and in Leighton Bromswold, and at Hinchingbrooke school. In total, the Creating Nature’s Corridor’s has planted 1,570 in just seven days.
All planting has been undertaken by volunteers and businesses and led by Creating Nature’s Corridors founder, Brampton-based Vhari Russell. Vhari comments, “This is a great start to the year. Our aim is to plant 10,000 trees and hedges every year and thanks to the army of supporters and volunteers, we are scheduled to be well over halfway by the end of the month. A special thank you goes out to Notcutts, for their generation donation of spades AND helpers, without their help we could still be digging! This initiative represents a wonderful way to unite members of the local community and enable residents to make a difference to our planet by playing a role in creating more woodlands for future generations to enjoy.”
Mr. Patterson, Hinchingbrooke School Principal said, “I am delighted that Brampton-based charity Creating Nature’s Corridors is working with Hinchingbrooke and not only donated but helped to plant an amazing total of 810 plants around the school on Monday 27 February. It was a wonderful atmosphere and our students thoroughly enjoyed themselves getting stuck into this important work, alongside our HBK gardener, Marie Brooks! We very much hope to do it again soon!”
The charity is on the lookout for more tree guardians who can offer additional locations for the planting of native trees and hedges. Anyone interested in taking up this opportunity should contact Vhari Russell on 07769683020 email@example.com
