Business Awards 2019

The Chestnut Tree House Business Awards took place at South Lodge Hotel on Thursday 7 March 2019.


Chestnut Tree House has been caring for life-limited children in Sussex and South East Hampshire since 2003. Over the past 18 years, hundreds of businesses have raised thousands of pounds for us, enabling us to continue providing the specialist care that is vital to so many children and young people in our local area.

Business Awards logoThe Chestnut Tree House Business Awards were conceived in 2013, to recognise businesses and individual employees who are outstanding in their communities, and to thank them for supporting Chestnut Tree House.

The 2019 awards were launched at Chestnut Tree House on 4 October 2018 where some of our supporters heard from lifetime Patron and awards host Ambrose Harcourt, as well as previous winner, Olivia Coppin, who spoke about her experience of winning an award in 2017.

Some of our judges were also there to share what they will be looking for in our 2019 winners.

Our judging panel for 2019 was award-winning businessman and founder of Checkatrade.com, Kevin Byrne; Chestnut Tree House Trustee, Maureen Chowen; Colin Davis of LawlerDavis, winner of the Outstanding SME Supporter 2017; and Jon Rogers, whose events company was responsible for creating and producing the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland.
