Pay for a Day: Jason Burrill

Friday 23 March 2018

The costs of all care services on Friday 23 March 2018 have been paid for by Chestnut Tree House 15th Birthday Patron, Jason Burrill.

Jason has been involved in various activities and events for Chestnut Tree House, including his first golf day being held today at East Sussex National.

On speaking about becoming a 15th Birthday Patron, Jason said, It has been an honour this year to be asked to be one of the 15th year birthday patrons alongside some wonderful people.  Since I started acting and appeared on Big Brother my social media awareness continues to grow and it is ideal to use that to support charities that are close to my heart and Chestnut Tree House is one of those.   The House is an amazing place, looking after over 300 children in our area that are unlikely to see adulthood and never experience the things as we get older that we take for granted every day as they will simply not be here.   

Chestnut Tree House needs over £3.5million a year just to survive and with the government only giving 7% (£220,000) we need to fundraise, we need to raise awareness, we need to help. My Celebrity Charity Golf Day is just one very small way of raising money and in September, with others, I will be abseiling off Arundel Castle as Batman.  But you can help too. Come to the House, take a look around, see the children so happy playing and having fun regardless of their future.  There are so many ways of helping, so please do what you can, however you can.   Every penny and every donation of time helps. Thank you” 

Everyone at Chestnut Tree House would like to say a big thank you to Jason Burrill for his support which makes a real difference to the life limited children and families we support.
