    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Our Friendship Tree is the focal point of a Growing Community of Peace, Love, and Belonging. It nurtures an appreciation of Nature and the development of self awareness to spread harmony to others and share the precious human interconnection we all seek.

    Our 50 year old Tree was recently damaged in a storm and we need to replace it so its benefits continue to be shared by all who experience it.

    For those who have been asking, this is a little background information:

    The Friendship Tree Festival began on 1st May 2010 as an artwork focused on 'Community' and 'Nature'. It was accompanied by an ephemeral, delicate, floating sculpture called Rainbow Bridge. The two pieces represented a journey to something nurturing and uplifting.

    During the years that have passed our community and many visitors have added to it,creating the ever changing piece you see today.

    Every year we 'recharge' the artwork with a festival celebrating Peace, Love, Friendship and Nature, a universal message of hope that has touched and transformed many thousands of people's lives, often in subtle and sensitive ways. Here's a Great Video encapsulating the Ethos of the Friendship Tree Festival:

    Thank you to all those who have and continue to participate in this ever growing, evergreen artwork, your contribution is really appreciated.

    Although we would like to see how the current damaged tree fairs, the council have offered to plant another tree in late Autumn, this will be 10-12 foot high maximum. We ( art4u) would like to add any money raised to their offer to purchase a more mature tree and make a good quality plaque to place under the tree sharing information about the community project. The current damaged tree took between 30 - 50 years to grow so although patience is a virtue it would be lovely to offer our community something more substantial as the focus of love, peace and friendship. Thank you your support is really appreciated. If you would like any further information please let me know.

    Kindest thoughts,

      This is an appeal for a tree, a symbol for Barry and a 'thank you' to a great guy, Glyn Pooley who does so much for Barry.
