Pay for a Day: Willmott Dixon

Friday 26 October 2018

The cost of all care services at Chestnut Tree House for the weeks of Monday 29th October through to Sunday 18th November 2018 have been paid for by Willmott Dixon’s Construction Cobham office.  A day’s care at Chestnut Tree House costs £6,850.

Thank you so much to everyone at Willmott Dixon from all of us at Chestnut Tree House for your continued support and generosity.

This is why they chose to Pay for a day…

Willmott Dixon has a number of projects spread across the Sussex and Hampshire area.  They also have a number of people who live with their families in the local vicinity to Chestnut Tree House.  Inspired by the ‘Pay for a Day’ in 2014, Willmott Dixon has continued to support Chestnut Tree House through numerous fundraising efforts for the fifth consecutive year. Inspired by the families who utilise the care services, many of the Willmott Dixon team have built strong relationships with Chestnut Tree House, understanding the difference fundraising makes. The charity remains close to their heart.

Willmott Dixon would like to thank key supporters from their supply chain and design consortium who helped them achieve their goal.  They were:

Willmott Dixon recently completed their most ambitious challenges to date, set on the South Coast, the ‘Jurassic Classic’ challenge saw some team members walking over 60 miles in 24 hours in blistering high temperatures … an aspiration to raise further funds to beat last year’s event!

Thank you to Willmott Dixon from everyone at Chestnut Tree House.
