Save Sheffield Trees campaign urges residents to donate
Campaigners fighting to save Sheffield trees from the axe are making a final plea for donations ahead of tomorrow's High Court hearing.
Heeley tree campaigner Dave Dilner was granted a High Court interim injunction in February, preventing Sheffield Council and its contractor Amey felling trees for three months.
Sheffield City Council, the defendant, and Amey, the interested party, who signed a £2.2billion contract with the city, are strongly contesting the case.
Ahead of the hearing in London tomorrow, campaigners have reopened the crowdfunding campaign in order to raise £10,000 to cover further legal fees.
Campaigners raised more than £7,500 in less than 24 hours to fund the initial legal bid – hitting headlines across the country with the show of people power.
