Is enough, enough? Help Heartwood
When we launched our fundraising campaign for a ‘mystery site’ in the south east in May 2008, I don’t think any of our supporters could have envisaged what we would later unveil in July. The site at Sandridge, outside St Albans is to be the biggest woodland creation project in England!
At an area the size of 425 football pitches, it is no small task. As one of the least wooded countries in Europe, our supporters have seen this as a great opportunity to help us increase our woodland cover and have helped us raise enough money to be able to purchase the site. When we announced we had acquired the land we were also able to tell people the name for the site would be Heartwood. However to complete the vision of the site we need to raise a total of £8.5million to be able to buy the land and plant the trees for the site …..so you know what’s coming next….if you can donate what you can to the Heartwood appeal, your help would make all the difference.
We have the opportunity to make history with this project. Instead of leaving future generations with a legacy of airport expansion and a boom and bust economy; we can leave them with acres of life-enhancing woods, relaxing open areas and miles of pathways to explore.
Myself and the project team will be using this blog to let you know about latest developments, update on our fundraising efforts and reply to your comments.
