Dame Joanna Lumley is a much loved British actor, author, and TV presenter.
She has been Tree Aid's patron for more than 25 years and has supported the charity in many different ways during our long-term partnership.
Joanna says: "Trees are being wiped from the landscape in the African drylands and the desert is spreading, making it harder for people to feed their families and earn an income. I have been supporting Tree Aid for more than 25 years because it provides such an effective, practical solution to the urgent issues of poverty in Africa and the environmental decline that so often causes it."
