DURING the process of arranging my mother's funeral after she died in Lancashire last month, the funeral director asked what we wanted to do with her ashes. It was then that they told us of the Life for a Life scheme which helps local charities and the environment.
They plant a tree in memory of your family member and the ashes are put underneath the tree. We all thought that it was a lovely idea to have a tree and my mum here in Cambridgeshire. Unfortunately, Life for a Life does not have a planting area here. Please can your readers help us to find a piece of land for Life for a Life to plant a tree for my mum.
We are not the only family in this situation. I have spoken to a representative of Life for a Life, and they are constantly looking for new areas. Check out their website for more information.
It is a wonderful scheme, one that should be encouraged. Do you have a piece of land that they can use? If so, please get in touch with them.
