Describing why The Snowman is so important to Chestnut Tree House, Sarah Colbourne, Head of Fundraising says:

Snowman 2018 i360“The Snowman is loved by many, but the themes and emotions particularly resonate with us and the children and families that we care for. The young boy in the story gets to experience the most amazing adventure, but then he loses his new friend. But, when you think of The Snowman, it’s not the sad ending you remember. It’s the happy times they have together and this is very much what Chestnut Tree House is about – providing wonderful care, experiences, and precious memories of happy times together.”
