Meet the Care Team Hastings: “If you could do one thing for us, then just tell someone else about us.”

Tuesday 29 October 2019

Meet the Care Team Hastings: “If you could do one thing for us, then just tell someone else about us.”

On Tuesday 22 October, over 50 guests met with Chestnut Tree House’s East Sussex care team to find out what their support means to local families.

The event, held at Hastings Contemporary, was hosted by the director of Lawler Davis, Colin Davis, who introduced guests to the Chestnut Tree House care team and welcomed charity patrons, Barry and Jacquie Hinves to the event.

Karen Brailey, from Chestnut Tree House, also joined the care team and passionately spoke about the vital impact that the guests support had on the local community.

“Your support means that Chestnut Tree House can care for children who are unlikely to reach adulthood – and their families. Time together for them is so precious, so we focus on making the most of every moment that they have” Karen says.

“We have had an office in East Sussex for around six years now” Karen continues. “The community care team for the county has grown from one nurse to a team of six and we are now caring for around 60 children in East Sussex.”

“Thank you for all of your support in raising awareness in your local communities. We know that there are lots of people in the area who simply don’t know that Chestnut Tree House exists, which means we know there are people who could be accessing our services who aren’t. If you could do one thing for us, then just tell someone else about us.”

Amongst guests, the Mayor of Bexhill, Kathy Harmer; and the Mayor of Hastings, Nigel Sinden, attended the event; Loren Charlton from Barclays Bank also spoke about his recent and upcoming fundraising challenges he has planned for Chestnut Tree House.

“On behalf on everyone at Chestnut Tree House, we would like to say thank you for everyone who attended the event and made it a success”, Karen says, “We would also like to say thank you to Hastings Contemporary for holding the event. For local families. For living. For the Now”.
