Thank you for supporting our Christmas Appeal

Hands holding a pine seedling

We know from talking to many of our supporters that lots of them – like Sir David Attenborough – have a favourite tree.

Our beautiful woodland is a natural playground (and a vital classroom) for our youngsters. It's a healthy outdoor gym that's open 24/7 for everyone to enjoy. It's a quiet sanctuary for peaceful reflection. In other words, creating and restoring green spaces isn't just about caring for nature. It's about caring for people as well.

But many communities don't have access to these green spaces, and we work to ensure that your love of trees and green spaces can be shared across the UK and by generations to come.

Your donation will be gratefully received and carefully spent, thank you for supporting our Christmas appeal.

  • £10 - Your £10 could get spades, loppers, trowels and wheelbarrows where they're needed.
  • £25 - A £25 donation from you pays for vital education materials to get kids involved in thinking about nature.
  • £100 - A donation of £100 will pay for over 60 native British saplings for tree planting projects.
  • £250 - Our brilliant nationwide teams of volunteers all need expert guidance – £250 helps us train five more Project Leaders.

An example of how we make a difference

Kids planting treesOur new planting project in Hull is a perfect example of how, with your help, we can make a real difference. 

In partnership with the City Council and the Heywood's Initiative, TCV's volunteers are carrying out several large tree planting projects in and around Hull this winter. 

This will help create small areas of mixed native woodlands within the city, around the margins of existing green spaces and schools, for the benefit of everyone within the local community. 

Remarkably, the area around Hull has less than 3% woodland - one third of the national average of a habitat that is so vital for reducing pollution and freshening the air we all breathe. 

With your support, we're hoping TCV can plant at least 5,000 new trees, to make a real difference for people, health and wildlife by readdressing this balance.
