In all the media frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday we would like to take a calmer moment to mention our friends at Princes Trees again this year.

£2 from the sale of every Christmas tree bought goes to the charity they support in Uganda, this year being allocated to their women’s microfinance fund, which aims to empower village women by giving them small loans to establish entrepreneurial ventures that result in a boost for the whole community. The picture below shows the recipient of one of the first loans – with these funds she has been able to employ other women to work on her coffee farm and increase productivity.

The photo above shows some of the children in the schools enjoying toys and games, some of which were donated so generously by local people following the appeal last year.  Thank you so much for your support.

More information about the charity is at the website here:
