Sponsor a tree – Pay a specialist nurse for the day
19th March 2013

Sue Ryder celebrates its 60th anniversary this year and to celebrate we are offering people the chance to sponsor a maple, beech or hornbeam tree at the Sue Ryder Henley Woodland for £120. This can pay for one day of specialist nursing care at your local hospice and we are aiming to raise at least £36,000 from this initiative in 2013, which would pay for 300 days of nursing care.

The trees are already growing at the Woodland and were kindly donated and planted by staff from Prudential, the international finance group.

Wendy Murgatroyd, Regional Fundraiser says: “The Sue Ryder Henley Woodland project has been in existence for almost 18 months now, and along with our partners, Henley Town Council, Timberland and Henley in Transition, we’ve enjoyed seeing the Woodland take shape.

We are also proud to be working with Henley Town Council as part of their “In Bloom” initiative and supporting their Britain in Bloom entry in 2013. As Sue Ryder are celebrating their 60th anniversary of providing incredible care, we thought it would be a great idea to offer people the chance to sponsor a tree to celebrate with us and help our care grow in the local area.”

Trees can be sponsored for any reason, to celebrate an anniversary or special birthday or in memory of a loved one. You will receive a certificate, car sticker and a dedication will be hand painted onto the oak sign at the entrance to the Woodland.

If you would like the opportunity to sponsor a tree at this unique local site, call 01491 641070 for more information or to sponsor a tree.
