Trees for Cities launches TreeBay push to raise funds for tree planting projects

Trees for Cities which raises funds to plant trees in urban areas has launched TreeBay for the fifth year running.

TreeBay offers a series of presents available on the auction site eBay which usually raises around £1,500 each year.

Signed copies of Graham Norton and Jamie Oliver books, surfing lesson, bungee jumping, spa visits and hampers are among the treats on offer.

All proceeds will go towards tree planting schemes and the organisation’s Edible Playgrounds project, which is creating orchard and vegetable gardens in schools.

Marketing coordinator Heather McIntosh said: "Edible Playgrounds is tied in with the food poverty crisis that’s affecting so many of our children. We want to provide children with access to foods which they will hopefully incorporate into their diet."

Trees for Cities is looking for further donations for the site. Call 020 7587 1320.
