Supporting Chestnut Tree House:

The Madehurst South Downs 10K is supporting Chestnut Tree House, meaning that just by entering this picturesque event, you’re already helping us raise vital funds to care for even more families across Sussex.

If you wanted to take that even further…

• Raising £157 allows a member of our Community Team to provide a few hours specialist nursing care and symptom management for a life-limited child in the child’s home, allowing the parents or carers to spend quality time together.

• Whilst £285 will provide for one hour of all care services at Chestnut Tree House.

You can see below all the ways in which your fundraising helps children and young adults in need.
