Ways to donate

Give in celebration

Feel even better on your big day by knowing you’re giving something back to your local community, supporting children with life-shortening illnesses.

Whatever the occasion, you can celebrate with Chestnut Tree House, knowing that your donation gifts to us will make a real difference to the lives of local children, and their families, who are facing a life-shortening illness.

Ideas for donating in celebration

  • We can provide celebration donation envelopes for you to hand out at weddings, civil partnerships or Christenings. Your guests simply put their cash or cheque donation into the envelope and return it to the hospice.
  • Having a party? Why not send the envelopes out with your invitations or put them on tables at the celebration?
  • We can supply money boxes or collecting buckets for you to use at at your celebration venue
  • If you’ve got friends or family who live abroad, save them the cost of shipping a present over and ask for a donation to be made instead.
  • Create an online fundraising page with JustGiving and ask for the amount people would have spent on gifts to be donated instead.

Order wedding favours

Support us on your wedding day or day of your civil partnership by giving each of your guests a unique wedding favour.

We've created our very own wedding favours that your guests can wear in memory of your special day. Our ‘make a wish’ bracelets come in two designs – a tree of life and a heart. All we ask is for a suggested donation of £2.50 per favour.
