The £5,500 raised by 22 cyclists earlier this year in aid of funding research into Acute Oak Decline is being put to good use by scientists at Forest Research. Organiser Russell Ball has received a letter from Forest Research’s Chief Executive:
I am writing to acknowledge receipt and thank you for the very generous cheque, we have just received from the International Society for Arboriculture following the ‘Cycle Ride for Research’ fundraising event to support the work undertaken by our team on research into Acute Oak Decline. The money will go towards purchasing laboratory equipment that will facilitate our work and is very much appreciated.
Chief Executive, Forest Research
My thanks to all those who sponsored my part in the 32 mile ride through central London.
