I am running the Manchester Half marathon for City of Trees because a city without trees would be a grey and sad place

We aim to plant 3 million trees to help transform Greater Manchester

Charity Registration No. 1072706

Story

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than 50% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, and this percentage is expected to increase to 70% by 2050. This means that trees and woods now play an ever-more important role in our cities and towns. 

They create healthier, happier communities, tackle climate change, reconnect our children to the natural world, and provide essential habitats for wildlife. Trees and woods ensure our urban areas are economically, socially and environmentally more sustainable and resilient. The arguments for trees are clear, and the best time to act is now.

City of Trees is able to plant a tree for every £10 raised so the money goes to a great cause.

Thank you so much for supporting me and the City of Trees team!
