Countryfile Magazine - - Great Days Out -

It’s a great feel­ing to have a favourite tree or area of wood­land that you can es­cape to. If you’re lucky enough to have one, why not show it some love this sum­mer by host­ing a tree party for friends and fam­ily? Not only will it be a fun way to spend the day, but you could also raise vi­tal funds to help pro­tect wood­land all over the coun­try.

To help you do just that, the Wood­land Trust is giv­ing away free party boxes full of good­ies and great fundrais­ing ideas to get your party started. All you need to do is make a tree your guest of hon­our!

It’s a bril­liant way to help the Wood­land Trust stand up for trees, and there are so many fun ac­tiv­i­ties you can or­gan­ise, in­clud­ing cake sales and treasure hunts.

Last year was a hugely suc­cess­ful in­au­gu­ral year for In­vite a Tree to Tea, and this year the Wood­land Trust wants even more peo­ple to get in­volved in 2017.

Don’t for­get to share the best pic­tures from your event on so­cial me­dia, us­ing the hash­tag #TreeParty. Not only can you use it to check out other peo­ple’s events for in­spi­ra­tion, you just might en­cour­age more peo­ple to hold their own, and the more peo­ple who can stand up for woods and trees, the bet­ter!
