There are so many ways you can get involved and support Chestnut Tree House


Giving in memory

A gift in memory allows you to remember someone special through a donation dedicated to them. Here are the ways you can support Chestnut Tree House hospice care by giving charitable donations in memory of a loved one.


A gift in memory is a way of honouring the life of someone special while making a difference to the lives of others.

A lasting tribute, your gift will help us to continue providing vital care and support to local children with life shortening illnesses.

Our specialist services are provided free of charge to life-limited children and their families from across East and West Sussex and South-East Hampshire.

It costs well over £3.5 million a year to provide our care services both at the hospice and in families’ own homes, so every gift in memory is a valued contribution.

Remembering someone who has died is a very personal thing so we offer a range of different ways to give a gift in memory.

Donate in memory today

Donations at a funeral or special occasion

Our specially-printed envelopes can be given to friends and relatives to make their own donation. These can be used at a funeral or to mark a special occasion.

Give in lieu of flowers

Families often ask for donations to Chestnut Tree House instead of flowers at the funeral of a loved one. The phrase ‘in lieu of flowers’ doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be no flowers at the funeral; often it means that the family may have decided to limit floral tributes to immediate family only and others are invited to make a donation to a named charity if they wish.

Your funeral director will be able to advise you on the different options.

Raising money in memory of a loved one

A JustGiving In Memory page is an inspiring but simple way to honour the memory of someone special. You can create a page in their memory in a few minutes and add your own photos and their story.
