Why Julia is Running for the Trees...

Each year over 500,000 people explore Westonbirt’s tree collection. Some will be seeking a moment of mindfulness amongst nature, others will be sharing their favourite spot in the arboretum with a friend, and some will enjoy a familiar walk followed by tea and cake.

Westonbirt is a special place for so many and it’s a privilege to see and hear how people connect with the trees here. This is why Julia is running for the trees at this year’s 10K.

You’ll likely know Julia as she looks after our members' memberships as The Friends’ Supporter Services Manager. Outside of work, she’s mum to lovely twin girls who will be cheering her on at the 10K alongside her husband Keir. Follow her story on our blog as she takes us on her journey to complete the Westonbirt 10K and raise money to keep Westonbirt thriving.

Please make a donation to Julia's appeal today. With your support we can ensure that Westonbirt Arboretum remains a safe, accessible green space for you and others to enjoy today, tomorrow and for generations to come.
