We're getting ready to run...
We're getting ready for our very own Reindeer Run on the 7th December for Chestnut Tree House, the children’s hospice for Sussex and South East Hampshire.
All of the children taking part will be provided with their very own set of reindeer antlers and a flashing red nose. After school, we will be opening the Ark Castledown café where everyone is welcome to purchase a drink, there will also be cake and biscuit decorating with all proceeds made being donated to the Chestnut Tree House.
As you may already know, Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire. They care for life-limited children both at the House, and in families’ own homes. It currently costs over £3.5 million per year to provide all of their care services yet they receive less than 7% of their funding from central government. This means they need to raise 93p in every £1 through fundraising. It is because of events like this that they are able to continue to provide this vital care to local children and families.
Thank you in advance for your support; it really is very much appreciated.
