MAY 22, 2008: The Forestry Commission hopes a special series of summer concerts bytop musical acts will raise thousands of pounds to support a range ofenvironmental and social projects in local woodlands.
‘The concerts are a vital part of the Forestry Commission's drive to attract more and new people into Britain's forests and to help protect England's precious woodland resource,' said a spokesperson.
‘All profits from the concerts are put back into local projects and give valuable support to the Commission's work. In recent years, these have included habitat creation for endangered butterflies; health projects to encourage the young and old to get out and about in the natural environment; and installing wood fuel heating systems to help us contribute towards the fight against climate change.'
