Queen’s tree planted in our hospice gardens
We have been honoured with a tree which formed part of a sculpture celebrating the platinum jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
The ‘Tree of Trees’ was a 21-metre metal sculpture which went on display outside Buckingham Palace in June. It featured 350 British trees and highlighted the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative — encouraging people to plant trees to commemorate her reign.
Now one of the trees from the sculpture — a Rowan tree — has been planted in the grounds of the hospice by the Lord-Lieutenant of West Yorkshire Ed Anderson CBE.
Clair Holdsworth, our chief executive, said: ‘We are honoured that the Lord-Lieutenant of West Yorkshire chose us to receive one of the trees commemorating the late Queen’s historic reign.
‘We are lucky to have extensive gardens, which are enjoyed as a space to play and relax by the children and families we support, and this tree will be a wonderful addition.’
Mr Anderson said: ‘I was delighted to plant one of the jubilee trees at Martin House, which does such wonderful, inspiring work with babies, children and young people with life-changing conditions across our region.’
