Tree sponsorship is an ideal Christmas gift

THE charity Community Forests North West is offering a Christmas gift with a difference this year.

For £15 relatives and friends can dedicate a sapling in one of Wigan’s local beauty spots including Barlow’s, Byrom, Colliers and Windy Bank Woods. The trees come with a certificate, personalised with a chosen message, along with a map to find the woodland.

The donation will also help to create acres of community woodland, improving the area and providing places to relax while making Wigan a greener and healthier place to live.
