We’re calling on the town’s businesses to donate trees for the Jubilee

By donating to the 'plant a tree for the Jubilee' campaign, your business could help to create a lasting, sustainable legacy that the town can enjoy for generations to come. You'll be:

  • commemorating Her Majesty’s seventy year reign
  • enhancing the town’s biodiversity
  • contributing to our ambitions for a carbon neutral Luton by 2040
