Love Leeds Parks Collaborates with Light Night on Tree Planting Fund
If you enjoy Light Night and wish to make a donation to support the event, all proceeds this year will go directly into Love Leeds Parks’ tree planting fund to offset the event’s carbon footprint.
Leeds aims to plant 5.8 million trees in the next 25 years to help achieve its goal of becoming a carbon neutral city. Trees play an essential role in fighting climate change as they absorb carbon and reduce the impact of adverse weather events, such as high temperatures and flooding. They also have many other benefits in an urban environment including providing homes for wildlife, removing pollution from the air and beautifying the city.
Every £5 donated to our fund will support the cultivation, planting and establishment of a tree from seed for its first five years.
Light Night takes place on the 14th and 15th October this year. For more information about Light Night Leeds and their sustainability plan visit their website.
