The Snowman™ Spectacular Appeal 2018 for Chestnut Tree House

Help The Snowman™ bring care, joy and wonder to children like Craig at your local children’s hospice



My son Craig is my amazing little man. He has a progressive neurological condition which means he is very fragile, has no independent movement and needs constant, round-the-clock care. But Craig has a rich, rewarding life – thanks to the dedicated, expert care he receives from Chestnut Tree House, your local children’s hospice.

Today I’d like to ask for your help in bringing a magical Christmas to all the children this wonderful charity will be caring for over the holidays.

From the moment we set foot in the hospice, I knew we were in the right place. We found a place of light, of fun, of laughter that was to become our second home, and Craig’s favourite place in the whole world. Chestnut’s care gives Craig the strength to fight on. This year will be his 10th Christmas since his diagnosis – when we were told he would only have a year to live.

This year, with help from The Snowman, we’ll be leading a fundraising campaign to find the £116,450 Chestnut will spend on care over Christmas for life-limited children like Craig. One hour’s nursing care for one child costs £35.70. A gift from you this Christmas could allow another child, another family, to know Chestnut’s extraordinary, unique care.

Please, support Chestnut Tree House this Christmas. Because your donation will bring wonderful moments into a local child’s life this Christmas, just like The Snowman did in Raymond Briggs’ famous story. To donate online visit: www.justgiving.com/Chestnut-Christmas-2018.

With best wishes to you and your family,
