Thank you to everyone who has chosen to support Friends of Lewes by choosing us as their “good cause” in Lewes and District Local Lottery. They now forecast funds of over £600 from your donations – which would be enough to plant four new street trees in Lewes!
As you will know, more trees will make a good contribution towards our climate resilience through, for example, the benefits of carbon storage and sequestration, preventing water run-off, providing shade and shelter and improving air quality. They will also provide food and shelter for wildlife and improve our wellbeing.
We need to increase our tree canopy cover from 11.5% to a minimum of 20% – so thank you for doing something which helps!
You can find out more about the value of the trees in Lewes by viewing our summary of the findings of the i-Tree Eco Survey on our website.
