    Story

    We are a group of Sikh volunteers inspired by Guru Nanak's message to humanity of oneness and his key values. We are fundraising to plant 550 trees and an information board/seating at the site of Carr Manor Fields, Stonegate Road, Leeds, UK and 1 tree with information at Roundhay Park, Leeds to celebrate the 550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

    Guru Nanak was the founder of Sikhism and promoted the universal message of One Creator (Ik Onkar) and equality. We have been working closely with Leeds City Council Parks & Countryside, Sikh Mental Health & Wellbeing Leeds, Grass Roots Opportunities (GRO) and partners to bring this project to completion.

    The funds will be used to purchase 550 trees, 6 extra heavy trees, information boards (Guru Nanak Woodlands part of the Leeds Forest initiative) including seating areas. Planting is scheduled for mid November 2020. We will be organising a "Bring a Spade" day where supporters can come along and help with the planting. An opening ceremony will be arranged with a day for the community to come together and celebrate.
    (Subject to COVID-19 regulations being met).

    We hope you can donate and help contribute to the environment while providing a much needed community project for the surrounding residents.
