Tree-mendous! Squire’s Garden Centres donate trees to The Meath
Squire’s Garden Centres has donated Silver Birch trees to The Meath in Godalming
Squire’s Garden Centres has donated 10 Silver Birch trees to The Meath Epilepsy Charity in Godalming as part of their ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign. The trees were planted at The Meath last week in a joint effort by the charity and employees from Squire’s in Milford.
Helen Jackson, Marketing Manager at The Meath Epilepsy Charity commented; “On behalf of the people we support at The Meath, I’d like to thank Squire’s for their kind donation of the Silver Birch trees. Our horticulture group planted them at the edge of our grounds near the train station where they can be enjoyed by residents and commuters for years to come.”
Squire’s campaign started last autumn, when they pledged to donate 5p for every plant sold in September 2019. This has enabled Squire’s to donate 300 trees to parks and green spaces in over 30 locations, including Priory Park in Reigate, Dinton Pastures Country Park in Wokingham, Stoke Recreation Ground in Guildford, Hickleys Corner in Farnham, Homewood Park in Chertsey, and Broom Road Recreation Ground in Teddington.
Squire’s Chairman Sarah Squire said; “We are very proud of our ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign. We want to thank our customers by giving back to the local area, and what better way to do this than by providing stunning Silver Birch trees that people can enjoy for years to come. Silver Birch are native British trees that are great for the environment, as they can improve air and soil quality, and they are also good for wildlife too, providing food and habitats for many birds and insects. We have been working closely with local councils and community groups who have planted the young trees this February in numerous parks and green spaces, so that they can be enjoyed by everyone.”
