Trees4Scotland are active and vocal in our support of our chosen charities. All of the charities below have been chosen by Trees4Scotland staff for personal reasons and we welcome your support.
The system of Trees4Charities is simple – for every tree planted with a particular promotional code we will make a donation to that particular charity. Our chosen charities are listed below with their promotional codes.
The Finola Trust
Finola is a fun loving teenager who loves singing, being part of society, having fun, socialising, going to the cinema. If you have met her then you will know she loves to live life. However she has had a hard start to life as she unfortunately had brain damage at birth. This can happen to anyone…. She did not breath for 5 minutes which resulted in damage to motor development/ speech/ physical development and slight sight damage (no side vision). This has resulted in that Finola is unable to sit unsupported, has curvature in her lower spine, requires assistance for all her physical daily needs. For her speech you have to ‘tune in to it’ and when not too tired is easily understood.
Finola and her mother are big friends of Trees4Scotland and by planting a tree with the code FINOLA you will be able to contribute to the trust fund that will help Finola to lead an independent life. For every tree planted 25% of the sale value will be donated to the Finola Trust.
Much more information can be found about Finola and some of her own fundraising activities by visiting her website: www.finolatrust.co.uk
