Root yourself in the history of the Burn
24th July 2019 was the 75th anniversary of the death of James Russell, whose tragic loss in action prompted his family to gift The Burn to Goodenough College. His life was celebrated at The Burn by the planting of the first batch of 75 trees in his memory. Local, national, and international friends have already sponsored 53 trees.
