People are being asked to dedicate trees in a new woodland area at Staffordshire's Trentham Estate to raise funds for a hospice.

The project will raise money for Stoke-on-Trent's Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

Organisers are asking for a £15 donation to dedicate one of about 10,000 trees which are to be planted in Trentham North Park.

The woodland area is designated as one of 60 Diamond Woods across the country to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Project organisers suggested the dedications could be made for a variety of reasons, such as to mark the birth of a baby or a special birthday or anniversary.

Liz Clarke, head of fundraising at the hospice, said: "The funds raised will help the hospice to continue to care for its patients and their families in the future whilst helping to improve the environment."
