ZoŽís thanks as TREE AID raises over £600k

Here is ZoŽís special thank you to everybody who supported the She Grows appeal organised by TREE AID earlier this year. An astonishing £638,091 has been raised to help provide women in Mali, West Africa, with the training and tools they need to turn tree products into nourishing food and goods from which to earn a living. The women will be able to Ďgrowí themselves out of poverty, as well as boost the environment, by looking after trees.

As reported by The Ecologist journal, ZoŽ commented: ĎThank you so much to everyone who donated to TREE AIDís appeal. I have been a patron for over 20 years and I know that it changes peopleís lives. The new She Grows project will empower one thousand women in Mali, who are adversely affected by climate change, to lift themselves out of poverty. It is about helping people to help themselves.í

To find out more about the charityís social and environmental work, which ZoŽ is so clearly passionate about, or make a donation, head to the TREE AID website.

Women of the Year Awards 2019

Environmental issues were also on ZoŽís mind when she joined a host of other inspiring women at the Women of the Year Lunch & Awards, a prestigious event held at Londonís Royal Lancaster Hotel on 14 October.

Speaking to the press on the red carpet, ZoŽ reflected on the significance of the National Theatreís decision to part company with oil and gas giant Shell. ĎItís a statement about what is going on in the world. It is a way for companies to listen. I think that is important.í

Anonymous HeART Project

Did you spot ZoŽís contribution to The Anonymous HeART Project charity auction? Her postcard-sized piece, called ĎNuf Saidí, features her dad, Sam Wanamaker, and Shakespeareís Globe, the project to which he devoted many years of his life.

The art-themed fundraising appeal, which took place on eBay earlier this month and featured hundreds of decorated postcards, benefits Heart Research UK.
