Rolls-Royce chooses Chestnut Tree House as 2021 Charity

Monday 1 March 2021

Chestnut Tree House is thrilled to have been named House Charity for 2021 by colleagues at the Home of Rolls-Royce, Goodwood.

This is the second time that Rolls-Royce colleagues have voted for Chestnut Tree House as their House Charity. In 2012, they raised one of their largest-ever totals through numerous events and activities, as well as voluntary work.

“The announcement of our House Charity is an important and highly anticipated moment in the life of everyone at the Home of Rolls-Royce,” explains Andrew Ball, Head of Corporate Relations, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.  “From nominations and shortlisting to the final ballot, it’s a true family affair in which everyone has an equal stake and takes a genuine personal interest. It really brings us together and shows the very best of who we are.

“We’ve supported a new House Charity every year since we opened our doors in 2003. In that time, our people have raised enormous sums for local causes, and forged deep relationships that last long after the 12-month partnership has ended. It’s a privilege to support such amazing people doing extraordinary work, and make a real difference in our community. We’re very much looking forward to working with Chestnut Tree House over the coming year.”

Chestnut Tree House was chosen as the Rolls-Royce House Charity for 2021 through a company-wide nomination process, and will benefit from a range of fundraising initiatives organised by colleagues at the Home of Rolls-Royce, Goodwood, throughout the year.

Alison Taylor, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Chestnut Tree House said: “The last year has been difficult for everyone, and extremely hard for Chestnut Tree House as we rely on fundraising to continue being able to provide vital care services for local children who need hospice care and their families.

“We’re so grateful that Rolls-Royce have chosen to support Chestnut Tree House and are really excited to see what this partnership will bring. Every penny raised will help us to continue supporting children and families across East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire. But it goes beyond financial support, as being linked to a business like Rolls-Royce helps to raise awareness of the work the hospice does, and show how we are very much part of the local community.’’

We look forward to working with Rolls-Royce during 2021 and thank everyone at the company for their support.
