Root yourself in the history of the Burn
24th July 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the death of James Russell, who was tragically killed in action during WWII. His sad death prompted his family to gift The Burn to Goodenough College. People from all over the world have been inspired and refreshed from visiting The Burn and we ask our local, regional, national and international friends to join us in remembering James by helping us to plant 75 trees.
