No, we haven’t either but Octopus Energy donated 50 trees to St Nicks as part of their tree planting initiative to help reduce air pollution. Just before we closed the Centre for Christmas, on 22nd December Octopus employees and Rachael Maskell MP joined our volunteers to plant out Hazel, Holly, Hawthorne and Maple hedge-sized trees to create an understory below the canopy of taller trees and improve the woodland. Many thanks to all involved, including York Press who have published a great article about it!
