Always Aim High Events has partnered up with charity Size of Wales on a ‘Tees for Trees’ initiative. In 2020, Always Aim High Events (AAH) participants will be offered the alternative of planting a tree instead of receiving their complimentary event t-shirt. All athletes have to do is tick a box when signing up for one of the events, and AAH will do the rest.
Welsh climate change charity, Size of Wales funds tree planting and forest protection projects across the world, from Kenya, and Uganda, to Borneo, and South America. Since its inception, Size of Wales has planted over 10 million trees so far and is aiming to have planted 25 million by the year 2025.
Size of Wales encourages the people of Wales to help tackle climate change by taking simple positive actions. Size of Wales works with schools, businesses, community groups and the Welsh Government to raise funds for forests, plant trees and raise awareness of the importance of forests in tackling climate change.
“The Tees for Trees initiative forms part of the ongoing environmental policy change that Always Aim High Events is committed to, with Tees for Trees the newest addition,” said Tim Lloyd, Director at Always Aim High Events. “We will be making announcements over the next few months highlighting what else we are doing to make a difference in our environment to safeguard what we can for the health and well-being of future generations.”
He continued, “Here at Always Aim High Events we know how important looking after our environment is. It’s vital to us as a company and all of us personally. The iconic, stunning locations we stage our events are a huge draw for participants and key to our success. We’re passionate about safeguarding our environment and the Tees for Trees initiative is another great way to offer our participants a way to make a difference.
“We believe that we are market leaders in the event sector when it comes to environmental issues, we have been committed to this for many years. Tees for Trees is the latest exciting initiative that our team will deliver; these initiatives make us very proud.”
Elspeth Jones, Director of Size of Wales said “We’re incredibly proud to be working with Always Aim High Events on this brand new Tees for Trees initiative. The donations from the amazing Always Aim High participants will go towards making our global environment better for future generations for many years to come.”
