It’s Children’s Hospice Week this month (June 22nd - 28th) and we’re highlighting the vital care services provided by Chestnut Tree House – our local children’s hospice, which cares for around 300 children and young people with life-shortening conditions across Sussex and South East Hampshire, all of whom are unlikely to reach adulthood.
Children’s Hospice Week is the UK’s only awareness and fundraising week for children and young people in the UK with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, their families and the children’s hospice and palliative care services that support them.
The theme of the week is ‘This is...’ And This is your chance to do something for all the little heroes who need hospice care – Chestnut Tree House has a top-secret mission for you.
For 17 years Chestnut Tree House has been there for local children and families when it matters most. But, coronavirus has had a devastating impact on their funding. Without people like you, Chestnut Tree House wouldn’t be able to provide hospice care for local children and their families.
This is your chance to become a superhero and help to save Chestnut Tree House. So, dig out your funky fancy dress. Put on your cape. Grab your sidekicks. And smash your daily missions – dressed as your favourite superhero, of course!
From being sponsored to wear fancy dress for your virtual meetings for the week to raising funds by putting your super skills to the test, however you choose to fundraise, you can be sure you will be making a real difference to the little heroes who need hospice care – now and in the future.
