Fantastic news! A family trust is granting Avon Needs Trees £150,000 to help us buy Hazeland! We’re truly grateful and thrilled that so many generous individuals see the potential of this project as we do.

Combined with the many other donations we have received, we believe we will be in a position to apply for match funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund this November. It’s a very competitive fund, but if we’re successful, we will be able to buy Hazeland next spring.

There is one other option – which is why we still need your help, and why we are particularly interested in finding more companies that might be interested in supporting us. If we can raise another £120,000 from supporters, we will be able to bid into a much less competitive ‘pot’ of funds. Our chances of getting Lottery money will be greatly increased.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our crowdfunder or donated through our website. We still have lots of ANTs Gift Cards available at – every £2.50 buys us a square metre of Hazeland so give the tree-lover in your life the gift of permenant forest.
