The long-awaited Carrington’s Plant-a-Tree project has finally started. On May 3rd, the Carrington Group and EFRAR 2018 brought the Plant-A-Tree project to life.

Esentepe Primary School was selected as the location for the initial plantings and the students of the school helped with the first planting with a total of 32 trees being planted around the periphery of the school.

The initiative by Carrington Group, in conjunction with EFRAR 2018 supporting Tulips, hopes this Plant-a-Tree project will not only contribute to making Cyprus greener but also help cultivate respect and love for nature in our children and future generations.

Mary Watson, Chair of EFRAR 2018, commented: “This was a super morning and all those involved had a lot of fun, especially the children.  The plan is to plant many more trees in and around Esentepe and people can dedicate a tree for just 25TL which is such a special way of remembering a loved one.  We are privileged to be involved in this venture as it will benefit so many people in so many ways.  Our sincere thanks to Carrington Group for this innovative way to not only raise money for Tulips but in making Cyprus greener for future generations.”

A Carrington Group spokesperson added: “We would like to express our gratitude to everyone who dedicated a tree to a loved one and thus helped Tulips, Help Those with Cancer Association. All proceeds will be going to help cancer patients.

Trees are still available for donation at 25TL. For any information please call:  0548 813 1010 and please keep following our FB page for the updates, as this is only the first stage – there are several other plantings planned shortly.”
