Ultimately the goal of the Catford Street Tree campaign will be to raise funds to enable the planting of more street trees in our area. Planting a new street tree in this borough has an initial cost of £240 followed by an additional cost of £260 over two years for Lewisham Council to carry out maintenance (which is waived if a resident agrees to undertake the maintenance for two years).
Therefore, in order to plant an additional 50 street trees we have an initial fundraising target of £25,000:
50 Trees × £500 = £25,000
In order to achieve this target we will be fundraising in the local area as well as applying for any grant funding that is available.
The first step is to gather as much support as possible from local residents and businesses. Having a broad base of supporters will give us a higher chance of securing the funding we need to make this campaign a success.
