PLEASE NOTE: If you signed up for Hit the Downs 2024  last year – we’ll be in touch to issue you a full refund.

If you were looking to take part in Hit the Downs for our sister hospice – St Barnabas House – then there’s lots of fundraising opportunities on the St Barnabas website for you to look through.


Why fundraise?

Your fundraising is helping children just like Rupert, who died at just four moths old. Rupert’s dad, Sam, took part in Hit The Downs in 2020:

Hit the Downs is amazing, it has a great atmosphere and the whole day had such a buzz. Even when we had the killer hills to climb, people were cheering us on and it made it so much easier. It meant a lot to me that I could give something back to Chestnut Tree House.
