Why not buy a gift with a difference this Father's Day?
What do you normally get from the family for Father’s Day? Chocolate that’s eaten within a week? Whisky that is gone far too quickly? Or a pair of socks, one of which has somehow disappeared? This year you could ask for a more meaningful gift that lasts for generations with a tree or woodland dedication from the Woodland Trust.
Your loved ones can dedicate a tree or larger area of woodland in your name in one of numerous Woodland Trust woods all over the UK. By choosing a tree or woodland dedication from a suggested donation of just £15 this Father’s Day you’ll have a little piece of nature dedicated just to you for years to come. And as Woodland Trust woods are free to visit at any time, you and your family can go whenever you wish to see your dedication and the wildlife around it thrive.
Every dedication is unique to you only. Each dedication comes with a pack comprising a personalised certificate, a map, and information about the wood, so you’ll still have something to open on Father’s Day. Or, if your children have left it a bit late this year the Woodland Trust can email you a virtual pack instantly.
The Woodland Trust owns and cares for more than 1,000 woods across the UK and all of them are free to visit whenever you choose.
All money raised from tree and woodland dedications goes towards the Woodland Trust’s charitable aims of protecting, restoring and creating UK woods for the benefit of wildlife and people. So you can have that feel-good feeling knowing your Father’s Day helped give a little something back to UK woods and wildlife…what pair of socks can do that?
