Each year we choose a different charity to partner with and support for 12 months, and we are delighted to announce from July 1st 2020 we have supported Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.
Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice cares for 300 children in the South East, 60 of whom are in East Sussex, all of whom are unlikely to reach adulthood. Their Community Nursing Team visit families at home, taking children out to explore their local community or simply giving tired families and carers the chance to take a well-earned break.
The partnership has seen various events and campaigns take place at Priory Meadow over the year.
It costs over £4.6 million every year to provide Chestnut Tree House’s care and less than 9% of that comes from central Government. They never charge children or families a penny, so rely heavily on the local community to fundraise. With support from the team and our valued visitors to Priory Meadow, we hope to contribute to raising funds and awareness for Chestnut Tree House.
