Stroud Valleys Project launches Earth Day crowdfunder

Taking part in the Big Give Green Match Fund campaign, which kicks off this Earth Day 2022, Stroud Valleys Project aims to raise money for a ‘Woodland Wizard’ to help plant thousands of native trees in the area.

Stroud Valleys Project is launching a crowdfunder this Earth Day, Friday 22 April 2022, to help it raise money for a ‘Woodland Wizard’.

The charity has seven days to raise £2,500 through its crowdfunding campaign, in order to earn match funding from the Big Give – and is encouraging the people of Stroud to make a donation by Friday 29 April 2022, to help it reach its target.

The money raised will be used to fund a ‘Woodland Wizard’, who will work with volunteers, helping to plant thousands of native trees across Stroud’s Five Valleys area.

The Stroud-based charity was selected from hundreds of applications to be a part of the Green Match Fund, where every £1 donated, up to £2,500, will be matched by the Big Give.

Stroud Valleys Project CEO, Clare Mahdiyone, said: ‘If we can raise £2,500 between Friday 22 April and Friday 29 April 2022, the Big Give will donate another £2,500.

‘We’re raising this money to fund a Woodland Wizard – a project leader to spearhead this year’s campaign of replenishing our depleted native woodland across our county. We need a skilled conservationist who is also able to support volunteers to take part in successful tree planting.

‘As well as making Stroud a better place to live and giving opportunities for our volunteers to work together and learn new skills, it’s also a way of battling climate change on a local level – an easy way for the people of Stroud to take action that has a genuine impact, locally and globally.’

The Big Give Green Match campaign launches at midday on Earth Day, Friday 22 April 2022.
