Or, if you prefer things old school – then we have a handy sponsorship form you can download to collect your fundraising.

Paula’s daughter, Lilly, has profound deafness and severe complex needs. Lilly and her family have been supported by Chestnut Tree House for several years, here’s what Paula has to say about the importance of the care we can only provide thanks to your fundraising and donations:

“Chestnut Tree House is amazing, they really are. They’re brilliant and they need all of the help and support that they can get so they can continue doing what they do for families like us. It would be heart breaking if I was told that they were going to get taken away from us. I don’t know what we would do without them”.
