We are looking for companies, schools and groups across East and West Sussex to take part in our £50 Challenge for Chestnut Tree House.

We will give you £50 and 4 months to organise some fundraising events and activities and grow this money to provide vital funds to help local children with life-limiting illnesses.

Chestnut Tree House provides specialist palliative care to over 300 children and young people with life-shortening illnesses across East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire, both at the hospice and in families’ own homes. We care for the whole family, offering psychological support, respite care and sibling support, end of life care and support following bereavement.

It costs well over £3 million each year to provide all our care services, both at the hospice and out in the community in families’ own homes. We receive less than 8% from central government funding so rely heavily on the support of the local community and activities like Chestnut’s £50 Challenge in order to continue providing this vital care to local sick children and their families.

Simply sign up by contacting Terrina Barnes, Corporate Fundraiser on 01903 871846 or email

Then we’ll give you a cheque for £50 so you can start fundraising straight away and grow that money into more vital funds to help Chestnut Tree House care for local life-limited children and their families.
