Family Investments planted a tree for every Ethical Child Trust Fund opened. Each tree planted in a UK school was matched by the planting of its 'twin' in Africa.
The first anniversary of Family's ethical Child Trust Fund (CTF) was celebrated with the planting of more than 1500 trees in the grounds of Dorothy Stringer School in Brighton. Family Investments followed this by planting trees at schools right across the country - more than seven thousand in total.
They have also contributed to important biodiversity plantings at The Science Museum, Wroughton and Chapel Hill Woodland, Guisborough
Miles Bingham, Marketing Director at Family Investments, said, "In its first year, Family’s ethical CTF has already proved a growing success. Response has not only been strong, but parents are proactively topping-up their child’s CTF on a more regular basis - creating a long-term investment for their children that does not come at the cost of the planet."
