Pay for a Day: Mike Holland

Thursday 26 July 2018

The costs of all care services at Chestnut Tree House on 27 July 2018 have been paid for by Mike Holland. A day’s care at Chestnut Tree House costs £6,850.

This is why he has chosen to Pay for a Day.

Mike said: “Many years ago, I lost my son Brian aged 13 to cancer and sadly did not have the help of a hospice. If I had, then many of the challenges my family faced afterwards, could have been alleviated. There was so little support or understanding about the need to grieve and also how vital counselling is for the whole family.

“I want to make sure that families in Sussex have all the support they possibly can get when faced with the devastating news that a son, daughter, brother or sister is not going to reach adulthood. Chestnut Tree house provides happiness and comfort from the family’s first visit to the very last day of the child’s life. The child’s remaining days are filled with love and joy, giving their parents the memories that will last for the rest of their lives.”

Pay For a Day logoIt costs £6,850 every day to provide care at Chestnut Tree House and out in the community in families’ own homes. It is Mike’s goal to encourage as many individuals and companies to also pay for a day to help Chestnut Tree House continue its vital work.

From everyone at Chestnut Tree House, thank you so much to Mike for his continued and generous support.
