SI Cannock & District moved closer to their target of planting one hundred trees in Soroptimist International’s centenary year by planting a tree at Littleton Lodge Care Home in Hednesford. The magnolia tree was kindly donated by Littleton Lodge and SI Cannock & District’s President Jackie Prince planted it on Tuesday 26th October watched by many of the care home residents who were safely indoors on such a windy day! She was accompanied by a number of Soroptimist club members who have worked hard to source trees for their project. This tree was no 76 of their 100; there are others in the pipeline which will get the club beyond their target.
President Jackie said “We are very grateful to Littleton Lodge for their very kind donation to our centenary tree project, as with the other trees we have planted, this tree will serve as a reminder not only of this special year but also of the work that Soroptimists do across the world for many years to come”.The pink Magnolia tree is planted near to the road used by Poppyfield Primary Academy school so that as well as the residents of Littleton Lodge and their visitors enjoying the flowers on the tree, children, parents and staff at the school will be able to enjoy it too.
