Children’s Hospice Week 2020

Children’s Hospice Week is the UK’s only awareness and fundraising week for children with life-shortening conditions and the services, like children’s hospices, that support them.


This Children’s Hospice Week, Chestnut Tree House has a top-secret mission for you.

Without people like you, we wouldn’t be able to provide hospice care for local children with life-shortening conditions and their families.

You are all superheroes. So, dig out your funky fancy dress. Put on your cape. Grab your sidekicks. And take on the week – dressed as your favourite superhero, of course!

From being sponsored to wear fancy dress for the week to raising funds by putting your super skills to the test, however you choose to fundraise, you can be sure you will be making a real difference to the little heroes who need hospice care – now and in the future.

Need some inspiration? We have put some super simple fundraising ideas together for you so you can get a head start and smash your top-secret mission.

Super silent – Are you the chatty chum in your household? Give everyone the super silent treatment for the week and ask them to pay for the privilege!

Everyday hero – Make everyday count by donating the money you are saving at home to Chestnut Tree House here, this could be the cost of your morning commute, your lunch money or the cost of your weekly trip to the cinema.

Super secret sports mission – Why don’t you take on a physical challenge, dressed as your favourite superhero? Whether you take on a 5k, take on a keepy uppy challenge or do a 100 press ups, the only limit to fundraising is your imagination.

Make sure you get all your friends and family involved and don’t forget to tag us in your superhero snaps so we can see what you’re up to!

Can’t decide what superhero themed challenge to take on? Why don’t you spin the wheel and take on whatever challenge it lands on!
