One of the Queen’s trees planted at Russell House

We are delighted and honoured to be one of just 12 charities in West Yorkshire nominated by the Lord Lieutenant to receive one of the 350 British native trees from the spectacular sculpture created for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. 

Speaking at the tree-planting ceremony last week, Ed Anderson, the Lord-Lieutenant said: “What an enormous pleasure it is to be here. Thank you so much for everything you do – it is truly inspiring. I can’t think of a more fitting organisation to receive one of these Royal trees.” 

Thank you to the Lord-Lieutenant for nominating us and for coming in person to the hospice to plant the tree. It will make a lovely addition to our garden, to be enjoyed by all the children and families we support for many years to come.
