There are so many ways you can get involved and support Chestnut Tree House


Reindeer Fun

This December, we are looking for schools and groups of all sorts to hold their own Reindeer Fun challenge to raise money for local life-limited children.


Reindeer Fun 2019!

Grab your antlers this December and and hold your very own Reindeer Fun challenge for Chestnut Tree House.

We’re looking for schools and groups of all sorts to hold their own Reindeer Fun challenge, and raise much needed funds for their local children’s hospice.

We will give every participant FREE reindeer antlers and a red nose. All we ask is that you raise as much sponsorship as you can, and have lots of festive fun!

Register your interest

Watch the video below, featuring Elgar House at The Weald School, to learn more about how you can take part in Reindeer Fun.

Last year, people hopped, skipped and jumped their way through their Reindeer-themed challenge and raised money for Chestnut Tree House along the way. There were obstacle courses, laps around fields and even an ice skating challenge!

Why don’t you get involved for 2019? Put together your own challenge, and gather your sponsorship. Previous challenges have included assault courses, park runs, and even a relay to reach Lapland! Here are some more ideas:

  • Reindeer Run
  • Reindeer Row
  • Reindeer Dance-Off
  • Reindeer Ramble
  • Reindeer Toddle
  • Reindeer Yoga

We will provide you with everything you need to run your event, including posters, sponsorship forms and helpful hints. We will also come and visit you to give an audience-appropriate assembly or talk about the hospice.

Help us spread the word about Reindeer Fun by following Chestnut Tree House on Twitter @ChestnutSussex and using the hashtag #ReindeerFun. Tweet us on the day of your event using our hashtag and we will re-tweet your tweets! You can also follow us on Instagram and Facebook.CTH_ReindeerFun_Tania_Jo_Alan3
