  • TREES FOR CITIES
    TREES FOR CITIESOne of my proudest achievements. I co-founded this environmental charity in 1993, with three friends in a pub. We grew it from nothing and as trustees we guided it to the point where today it has planted a million trees in cities worldwide. I produced 75+ charity fundraising events for the charity.
