SCHOOL children from across Bromsgrove will be planting trees for free thanks to the UK’s biggest woodland conservation charity.

The Woodland Trust has delivered 6,105 trees to schools and communities across Worcestershire.

It delivered 105 wildlife saplings to Rigby Hall School, 30 copse and 30 hedge saplings to Stoke Prior First School and 30 hedge saplings to Chadsgrove School and Specialist Sports College.

Beccy Speight, Chief Executive of the Woodland Trust said: “Our free tree scheme has been running since 2004 and so far we have delivered 7.6million free trees for many different causes – bringing nature to hundreds of thousands of people.

The tree packs have been funded by Sainsbury’s, IKEA FAMILY, players of People’s Postcode Lottery and Yorkshire Tea and will contribute towards the Woodland Trust’s WWI Centenary Woods Project.
