We want to make sure everybody in the UK has the chance to plant a tree. So, we’re giving away hundreds of thousands of trees to schools and communities. Together, we’ll get millions more trees in the ground. Choose your pack(s) from the list on their web site below and fill out our application form. We have two delivery periods per year, one in March and one in November. We are currently taking applications for trees to be delivered in MARCH 2023. www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/plant-trees/schools-and-communities/
I am delighted to let you know that Edward Lever, a student from Uppingham Community College, has won the Regenerators Award, presented by the BBC. This award is open to nominations from across the entire UK and it is a big deal. The awards have been set up to recognise certain individual’s efforts to help the climate. Edward has set up the Youth Sustainability Forum and with our help has now managed to get representatives from every school in Rutland involved.
You can find out more all about the award by searching “BBC Bitesize Regenerators Hall of Fame” or clicking on the link

In addition to his work on the Youth Sustainability Forum Edward is Vice-chair of the Youth Council and a lead member of the ECO group set up at Uppingham Community College who have made so much progress to reduce the school’s carbon footprint and raise awareness of the climate change emergency among their peers, staff and parents. He is also a young person’s rep at the Rutland Climate Action group.
He has given presentations at international forums such as the Young People’s COP 26 event, https://ukcop26.org/young-people-demand-action-to-protect-their-futures-at-cop26/ and you can see him taking part in one of the workshops ( Third way down the page, past the Timeline to Structure.
