WHY A MEMORIAL FOREST?
Because of Covid19, there are people who did not get a chance to say goodbye to loved ones, families who could not mourn together, and people who didn’t visit sick relatives to support them in times of need.
But, we have also seen ordinary people doing remarkable things, often putting their own lives at risk to help others. None of these people asked to be heroes or did things for personal glory, but without hesitating they helped us all in our shared time of need.
They have taught and inspired us to believe that when needed ordinary people can come together to achieve remarkable things. As we start to recover as a nation these lessons should not be forgotten.
MAKE THE DREAM A REALITY
LEAVE A LEGACY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
We have a dream that planting a Covid19 Memorial Forest can help people come together in a way that will leave a lasting tribute to remember and celebrate the ordinary people who are the heroes of our historic times.
By supporting Covid19 Memorial Forest Fund you can ensure that dream becomes a reality.
Support the cause of planting a Covid19 Memorial Forest and help our nation leave a lasting memorial to remember the loved ones we lost, celebrate the heroes that helped us, and leave a legacy that also benefits future generations. Both as a space to enjoy by generations to come, and also to help combat climate change, the other great challenge of our time.
FOREST GOALS AND PLANS
BECOME A SUPPORTER AND BE PART OF THE PROCESS
Our goal is to plant at least 50,000 trees, one for each person lost to Covid19. Our wish is to create a forest environment that can be visited and enjoyed by both this generation, and generations to come.
It’s early days in planning, but with enough support, the forest plans would also include a Covid19 Memorial, walkways, cycle paths, and children’s playground. In the coming months, we will be consulting all of our supporters on the exact plans they would like to see, we would love that to include you.
To achieve these plans we need support from people across the nation, and to raise £1.25 million pounds to fund the forest. With even more support though we can achieve greater plans to ensure the Covid19 Memorial Forest is more extensive, or we can plant trees in more than one location in the UK. The choice will be for our supporters to make.

HELP MAKE THE VISION A REALITY
We are asking for everyone who believes in the cause of planting a Covid19 Memorial Forest to take action to help make this vision a reality.

Doing one, or all, of these things will mean you will play your part in creating a Memorial Forest that will remember those we lost to Covid19, and will celebrate the ordinary people who did good deeds big or small during our shared times of need. We believe, like you, that all of these people should not be forgotten.
Take action and play your part in remembering, celebrating, and creating a lasting memorial – Together.
