TREE-MENDOUS: Parkinson’s charity with Croxley Green roots launches tree planting campaign

 Published on: 23rd March 2022   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Croxley Green founded charity has launched a new campaign, allowing up to 500 trees to be planted in the local area.

The charity Cure Parkinson’s was founded in 2005 by Croxley resident Tom Issacs, who sadly passed away on May 31, 2017. During his life, Tom fought to conquer Parkinson’s Disease and under his guidance, Cure Parkinson’s has become a key player in the world of research and trials.

Now, the charity has launched a campaign called Planting for a Cure, which allows hundreds of trees to be planted in the grounds of Micklefield Hall Estate, dedicated to those who have pledged to leave a gift to Cure Parkinsons in their Will.

Helen Matthews, Deputy CEO of Cure Parkinson’s, said: “We are leaving no stone unturned to find cures for Parkinson’s. We hope that before the trees in our legacy wood have grown too many inches, we will be able to share encouraging breakthroughs.”

The Planting for a Cure woodland has been donated by Anna and Jamie Rankin, the owners of Micklefield Hall in Sarratt.

On March 14, the campaign was launched at Micklefield as the Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Robert Voss CBE CStJ planted a tree in the ground.

Anna Rankin, owner of Micklefield Hall, added: “We are thrilled to help this wonderful charity. We have been involved with Cure Parkinson’s since its launch here in 2005 so we feel a special connection.”
