Planting Trees for a Brilliant Future

To celebrate 100 years of Soroptimist International, clubs all over the world have been planting trees.

A hawthorn tree was obtained from the Woodland Trust and on 29th November, during National Tree Week, President Rose and members visited Coppice Library and Wellbeing Centre in Sale to plant the tree.


Rebecca, co-ordinator of the Wellbeing Gardening Group, researched some of the history and folklore surrounding the hawthorn –

When hawthorn appears, it brings a message of hope and healing for our heart on both the physical and emotional level. This could signal the beginning of a new relationship or adventure. When we open our hearts and minds to what is possible, we soon discover that we are not alone on our journey. Hawthorn cleanses the heart of negativity and replenishes the body through nourishment. Hawthorn encourages us to feel renewed and refreshed as we
venture forward on our journey through life.
