Pay for a Day: Jamie Alderton

Monday 23 March 2020

The cost of all Chestnut Tree House’s care services on Monday 23 March have been paid for by Jamie Alderton, following his ‘Box Jump Everest’ challenge last year. That’s 24 hours of care, fun, love, laughter and support for local children and families who don’t know how long they have together.

Jamie Alderton_BoxJumpEverest_trainingIn November 2019, Jamie took on an incredible challenge – to box jump the height of Mount Everest in 24 hours. In addition to this mind-blowing feat of endurance, he also set himself a target to raise £20,000 for his local children’s hospice.

On 30 November, Jamie smashed both objectives – completing his box jump in just over 22 hours and raising over £21,000, which is enough to pay for three days of all Chestnut Tree House’s care services, both at the House and in families’ own homes across Sussex and South East Hampshire.

Jamie said, “Every time I visit Chestnut Tree House, I’m blown away by the place. My wife and I have two children of our own and know how important it is to make the most of every moment. But for families of children with life-shortening conditions, this is even more important. By supporting Chestnut Tree House, I know that I’m doing something to help these children and families, and that makes all the training and the challenge itself worthwhile.”

Thank you, Jamie, and everyone who donated and supported the Box Jump Everest challenge. Your support makes a real difference to local children with life-shortening conditions and their families.
