“Host a mask tree, support your community, and help us to grow a national forest”
The Community Mask Tree initiative was sparked off by Naomi Betts from Salisbury, Wiltshire. Naomi was already part of a hub of volunteer sewers that had mobilised to make scrubs and scrub bags for local key workers and identified that this effort could be put to action in helping ensure that everyone in the local area could access a face covering in the midst of the corona virus pandemic.

Our impact so far
Since 15th May 2020, as at 10th June 2020
A lot of mask trees ask for a donation in return for masks. This is often used to cover the cost of materials, but also some remaining amounts have been donated to local charities. These are just some of the charities who have benefited so far.
