Take on a challenge (or 15) in 2018

Tuesday 9 January 2018

Chestnut Tree House will celebrate its 15th birthday this November, and we want to encourage people of all ages across Sussex and South East Hampshire to take on a challenge to mark the occasion.

So make this a year for taking a leap. For crossing the finish line. For doing something you never thought you could.

Take a look at these amazing events and take on a challenge. For yourself. For your company. For local families. For living. For the Now.

Linda Perry, Director of Children’s Services at Chestnut Tree House said: “A lot has changed since Her Royal Highness, Princess Alexandra officially opened Chestnut Tree House on 11 November 2003, and we could not have helped the 833 children and families we have over the last 15 years without the help and support of the local community.

“Without people taking on challenges, fundraising, making donations, volunteering or pledging gifts in wills, we simply wouldn’t be able to continue providing the specialist care that is vital to so many children and young people in Sussex and South East Hampshire.

“To everyone who has helped us over the last 15 years, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you from all the children, families and staff at Chestnut Tree House. In our 15th year, let’s inspire everyone to live For the Now, take on a challenge and help us make every Now count.”
