‘One Tree Per Child’ is a project started by Olivia Newton-John and Jon Dee, the original founders of National Tree Day. Their aim is to get children planting millions of trees as part of a primary school activity to teach children about the importance of trees, nature and wildlife habitat.
In November 2015, Pat visited Whitchurch in Bristol to help schoolchildren plant trees as part of their plans to plant a total of 36,000 trees across the city where all 130 primary schools are taking part.
Pat started Do Something! with Jon Dee and Tina Jackson, the former head of Australia’s National Trust. Do Something! is a not-for-profit organisation that brings together the resources of community groups, the business community, local councils, and the goodwill of the Australian public.
They work to create and promote positive social and environmental change. Pat is on the board of Directors of Do Something! and plays a key role in the organisation.
