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

Organise your own event

Chestnut Tree is the children’s hospice service for East Sussex. Each year we look after hundreds of local children with life-shortening conditions, their siblings and families, giving them the chance to live life to the full – for as much time as they have together.

Individual fundraisers are those supporters – families, groups, and individuals – who work so hard to help Chestnut Tree House by organising events on our behalf. They are always coming up with interesting and unusual ideas from barn dances, masked balls and pub gigs to sponsored slims, overseas expeditions, continental car rallies and tandem skydives.

It doesn’t need to be expensive or extravagant – many of our fundraisers hold small events or events at school or at work such as dressing differently for a day, car washing or auctioning off the boss. Some supporters have gorgeous gardens which they open to the public; local hairdressers organise sponsored head shaves; pubs put on family fun days and gyms get active with all day aerobics.

The possibilities are never-ending and the Fundraising Team are always ready to help and support you with your fundraising efforts.

Further information about fundraising in aid of Chestnut Tree House can also be found in our handy ‘Fundraising – what you need to know’ booklet in the Downloads section of this page.
