MediaCityUK and City of Trees: Leaving a Legacy

6 March 2018

To celebrate the BBC’s Sustainability Season, MediaCityUK are proud to be supporting the City of Trees movement.

The whole of MediaCityUK will be gearing up to raise funds to plant at least 500 trees in Salford, leaving a lasting green legacy which will benefit both people and the environment.

The funding initiative kicked off in BBC's Sustainability season which ran from from Monday, 26 February to Friday, 2 March, seeing staff, stakeholders and celebrity presenters come together to talk about some of the top issues of the day including plastics and carbon.

Between April and November 2018 there will be a programme of fundraising, volunteering, events and activities for people who work at and visit MediaCityUK to get involved with.

Sian Day, Fundraising Manager at City of Trees said, “It’s fantastic to be working with MediaCityUK to support our ongoing greening work in the City of Salford. As a charity we spend around £1m a year delivering projects to plant trees, manage woodland and help connect more people to nature. We rely on donations and partnerships like this one to continue our vital work across Greater Manchester.”

Trees deliver a whole range of benefits which make them an essential part of the future of the city region. They create healthier, happier communities, help tackle climate change, reconnect people to the natural world and provide essential habitats for wildlife.

The total funds raised will be presented to City of Trees in National Tree Week in November, ahead of the next tree planting season.
