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

Reindeer runs

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.

2015 was a massive success, with 34 nurseries, schools, colleges and groups across Sussex grabbing their antlers to take part in the Chestnut Tree House Reindeer Runs campaign, raising over £30,000 for the children’s hospice supporting families across Sussex and South-East Hampshire.

Watch the film of The Launch Pad at Bevendean Primary School and their signed Reindeer fun!

Why don’t you get involved for 2016? Put together your own challenge, whether it is 1 mile or 10 miles, and gather your sponsorship. Previous Reindeer Runs have included assault courses, park runs, relays to reach Lapland and many more!

We will provide you with everything you need to run your event, including posters, sponsorship forms, helpful hints and suggested letters to parents.

Help us spread the word about our Reindeer Runs by following Chestnut Tree House on Twitter @ChestnutSussex and using the hashtag #ReindeerRun Tweet us on the day of your event using our hashtag and we will re-tweet your tweets!

How to take part

Everyone taking part will receive reindeer antlers and a red nose! You will also receive one Santa suit for the teacher/group leader. All we ask is that you have lots of fun and raise as much sponsorship as you possibly can!
