Birkenhead Park NHS-Keyworker Commemorative Trees

During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, I like many others are immensely appreciative of the tremendous hard work and sacrifice that our NHS staff and all keyworkers are tirelessly committing themselves to. 

This fundraiser is to raise funds for a lasting commemoration of the work that these members of our community have put in. 

The commemoration will take the form of a cherry blossom tree-lined avenue in Birkenhead Park.

Why cherry blossom trees? Well, I'm sure whilst you've been out during your daily exercise during lockdown, you have seen cherry trees in full blossom and it is my hope that this commemorative avenue will remind us at this time each year of the extraordinary period we are currently experiencing and the people who have helped make things more bearable for us.

I've been given the green-light by the council so start fundraising. I'm sure you'll agree that not only will this be a fitting tribute, but will also enhance the park for everyone. Meetings and discussions are ongoing with the council.

Each tree will cost around £50 (reasonably mature trees, ready for planting - not young saplings.) You can donate money for a whole tree or even just a couple of pounds - everything will help!

Many thanks for your "tree-mendous" support - it means a lot to me and I hope that it will mean a lot to the people who we are celebrating.
