Support from ‘Albion As One’ fund

Thursday 21 May 2020

We have lots of football fans at Chestnut Tree House, and many of the children love to have a kick-about outside in the gardens when they stay at the hospice.

From inspiring our children and many others by their activities on the pitch, the players at Brighton & Hove Albion FC are now inspiring people by their actions off the pitch as well thanks to a new charity fund – Albion as One, which we have recently received a donation from.

AlbionAsOneThe first-team squad made the collective gesture of donating more than £263,000 to launch the Albion as One Fund, a significant portion of their April wages. The fund has been added to by staff, directors as well as supporters to help local charities hardest hit by the global coronavirus pandemic and to help communities in the city of Brighton & Hove and across our county.

Glenn Murray said: “The people of Brighton & Hove and across Sussex have always been there for this football club going back a long way, and as players and representatives of the club we want to show the same support we’ve had from our community, week in, week out for so long.”

Skipper Lewis Dunk added: “We felt it was time to give back to the community in ways we think could be beneficial and to causes which are close to our hearts.”

All of us at Chestnut Tree House would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the Brighton & Hove Albion players and fans. Your support will help to ensure that children’s hospice care is here for the families in Sussex who need it – now and in the future.
