Pay for a Day to support Chestnut Tree House, the children’s hospice that provides care to life-limited children and their families.
Every day at Chestnut Tree House is a special day. As the children’s hospice for Sussex, we are a unique place of care and support for local life-limited children and their families.
So many special memories are created at the House, memories that will stay with families for the rest of their lives. The day you choose could be the day a child comes in to Chestnut Tree House for the first time for a short break. It could be the day a family goes swimming together for the first time in our hydrotherapy pool. It may be the day a child paints their first picture for their parents. Or, of course, it may be a family’s last day together, supported by our nursing team.
Through Pay for a Day you can choose to cover the entire running costs of our hospice service for 24 hours. Every day at Chestnut Tree House is unique and every day something wonderful and special happens. The day you choose to pay for could be the most precious day for a child and their family.
Yes! Simply choose a date that is special or significant to you or your group. There are many reasons why an individual, group or company might like to choose a specific day to pay for care at Chestnut Tree House. It could be a birthday, an anniversary or a day when friends, family or colleagues are gathered together. Whatever the reason, you can choose the day you wish to support.
We will celebrate your day with you and recognise your support in a number of ways.
Your support will be shown in the hospice’s reception area on your chosen day, on our website and remembered permanently in the Roll of Honour, which is kept at the House. We will send you a formal certificate of your day for you to keep. We will also be delighted to invite you to come to the house to see how your support is helping us to care for local life-limited children.
We have to raise £6,850 every day to pay for a day of care at Chestnut Tree House, provided at the house and in the children’s own homes. It now costs over £3.5 million a year to provide our care services and families are never charged for this care.
You can give this as a personal or corporate donation, or fundraise this amount by yourself or with your organisation. You can choose to pay for any day that is available and you can pay for as many days as you wish.
