Jogging for Trees

Fit Like Joggers opt to plant trees in place of t-shirts at latest #BrewDogRun!

Local running group Fit Like Joggers opted to switch their running t-shirts for donations in bid to plant more trees in Torry!

Raising £360 the group’s amazing efforts will help Cultivate Aberdeen plant nearly 400 saplings between November and Christmas at their flagship Community Garden; St Fitticks’ in Torry.

The aim is to create a natural screen and wind barrier against the effects of salt spray coming in off the North Sea and will also help wildlife stay on the move. The saplings planted will include dog rose, hawthorn, hazel, crab apple, and dogwood, and is being supported with The Woodland Trust.

David Scott, Founder and Leader of FitLikeJoggers said it was “great to be able to help local enterprise, Cultivate Aberdeen, by offering the chance to plant a tree instead of t-shirts at the last BrewDog Run”.

George Bellamy said, “it was a fantastic idea and we are so grateful to all the runners and supporters who donated, we can’t wait to share our progress over the next few weeks and look forward to creating a wall of colour through a fantastic variety of tree species up at the site.”
