Education Futures Trust gifted a tree from QGC Jubilee sculpture

Education Futures Trust Lord-Lieutenant helps plant gifted tree of trees

The Lord-Lieutenant with school children from West St Leonards Primary Academy and Carole Dixon, Chief Executive of Education Futures Trust planting a tree gifted to Education Futures Trust from the Platinum Jubilee ‘tree of trees’ sculpture.


On 2 November, the Lord-Lieutenant gifted, and then planted, one of the Queen’s Green Canopy ‘Tree of Trees’ to the Education Futures Trust in Hastings. This special occasion involved school children from across Hastings and other invited guests, including Cllr Keith Glazier, the Leader of East Sussex County Council and Graham Peters DL. Guests were given a tour of the site, visiting the Secret Garden and Forest School area to learn more about the work of the charity.

Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, the QGC ‘Tree of Trees’ sculpture stood tall outside Buckingham Palace for Her Late Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. The trees that made up the sculpture are being given to amazing organisations around the UK to thank them for their valuable and tireless work for their communities.

Don’t forget, if you’ve got a garden, you too could plant a tree in memory of Her Majesty and pin a photo to the QGC national map.
