In support of Age UK Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, George Square Financial Management has pledged 100 trees as part of the charity’s Trees of Life campaign.
Age UK Notts is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year and has set out to plant 750 trees across several public spaces to leave a lasting legacy for the communities it serves as well as raise £75,000.
George Square Financial Management has got on board with the project and as well as sponsoring 100 trees to help the charity reach their financial target, has today (13th March 2018) got a team together to plant them. The tree planting ceremony took place at Woodthorpe Grange Park with volunteers from George Square along with representatives from Age UK Notts and Nottingham City Council’s Parks and Open Spaces team. A collection of Lime, Oak and Beech trees were planted in sites across the park.
George Goward, MD at George Square Financial Management commented:
“Age UK Notts do excellent work and provide an invaluable service for the people and communities in and around Nottingham. As a Nottingham-based business ourselves, we wanted to show our support and help them to make a difference in improving the lives of older people in the area.
The Trees of Life campaign is a great way to give something back to the local community and it was a pleasure to be involved with the tree planting today. The team really got stuck in and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, especially as the sun decided to shine!”
Trees have also been planted at Cotgrave Country Park and Cinderhill with a further planting day scheduled at a second site in Cotgrave later this month. The Age UK Notts’ Trees of Life initiative is being ran in partnership with Rothera Sharp Solicitors.
