Memorial forest to keep air crews flying.

THE Air Ambulance Service is joining forces with the The National Forest to create a memorial woodland.

Supporters of the Rugbybased charity, which covers Warwickshire, can now plant a tree in memory of a loved one as part of a beautiful natural woodland, while helping to keep the lifesaving service flying. Charles Robinson, head of forestry at The National Forest, said: "We are really pleased to be working with the Air Ambulance Service to create a special place for commemoration and celebration in the heart of the National Forest.

"This new woodland makes an important contribution to our tree planting targets and will be part of a rich tapestry of woodlands in the area."

Ellen Marzell, head of fundraising for the Air Ambulance Service, added: "We know that memories of our loved ones are precious and that is why we want to help keep those memories flying.

"We encourage those who have lost someone dear to them to buy and plant a tree so that one day we can fill the woodland and they can visit a peaceful place to remember and reflect.

"It will also help to keep our helicopters flying so they can continue to get to injured people quickly and help save lives."

The woodland will be created in the heart of the National Forest near Ashbyde-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, close to the Staunton Harold Estate.
