Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice

We provide children's hospice care to children and families across Sussex

Charity Registration No. 256789


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.


Don - I am doing this event as I believe that all children deserve to have a good quality of life, however short it is. With your help and support (however small) you will help in this process. 

The thought of jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet absolutely terrifies me as I do not like flying and I am not keen on heights either! However, I am determined to undertake this but need your help and support to help me do so. 

Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove and South East Hampshire and cares for 300 children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-shortening conditions. Chestnut House relies heavily on charity as they do not charge the families of the children they care for. Chestnut House receives less than 6p in every £ from the government for support. 

It makes me happy to think that I will raise money to help fulfil and give children an opportunity to experience as many things that they can in what may be a short life. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity. 

Cam – I am taking part in this event as I believe anybody – Including Children suffering in Hospices should be free to enjoy themselves in all kinds of exciting and unforgettable experiences. With your support, you can help us out in donating to Chestnut House in supporting their families and children. 

Thank you for taking your time to read this, and thank you for donating - Your input means the world!
