Spalding Academy (formerly Sir John Gleed School) has a number of Christmas trees which students and staff are ready to give to the community.

About 20 Christmas trees were cut down to allow light to fall on wildflower seeds planted in the school’s Woodland Peace Garden which is based on a design by student Zoe Crane.

Spalding Academy is donating 20 Christmas trees to the community, either free or for a small donation, on Saturday morning from 10am until 11am.

The school is making the trees available to businesses, hospital or schools, either free or in return for a small donation.

A Spalding Academy spokesman said: “The trees are approximately 14 feet tall, with some being a little smaller and others a little larger.”

The school will open on Saturday morning, between 10am and 11am, for anyone interested in collecting one of the trees.

You can also email enquiries@spaldingacademy.org with details of the organisation wishing to have a tree.
