Children and families at Chestnut Tree House were treated to an activity morning with a difference on Monday 23 October, when members of Sussex Police and West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service organised a special activity morning at the hospice.
There were a range of things on offer for the children to enjoy, including trying on uniforms and helmets, meeting some of the dogs from the Police Dog Unit and using a high-pressure hose. They also got the chance to sit in a fire engine or on a police motorbike, and some children and nurses even took a ride in a police van. There was also a drone flying around the gardens and speed camera equipment for the families to see.
Jo Moss, Community Fundraiser at Chestnut Tree House said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Sussex Police and West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service for taking the time to organise this very special activity morning for us. It was a wonderful experience for the children and families, and a joy for us to see so many happy faces.
“Since Chief Constable Giles York selected Chestnut Tree House as his Charity of the Year, Sussex Police have been fantastic, supporting us in so many ways – raising money and awareness for us, as well as organising events like this for the children and families we care for.
“Nothing was too much trouble for the members of Sussex Police and the crew from Littlehampton Fire Station, and we really can’t thank them enough.”
