Whether you’re an adventure-seeker or adrenaline-junkie, now is the time to channel your inner superhero and test your nerve as Chestnut Tree House is offering 400 people an exclusive opportunity to abseil down Arundel Castle in West Sussex.
Chestnut Tree House will host two days of abseiling at Arundel Castle – Friday 28 and Saturday 29 September – when supporters will abseil 180ft down the iconic Bake House Tower to raise money for local life-limited children and their families.
Linda Perry, Director of Children’s Services at Chestnut Tree House said: “It costs over £3.5 million every year to provide all our specialist care services. We receive less than 7% funding from central government, which means we rely heavily on the generosity of our local community. Quite simply, we could not have helped the 833 children and families we have over the last 15 years without their support.
“There are lots of events planned for 2018, but we are really excited to be able to offer people the chance to abseil down Arundel Castle. This is something very special, and we are extremely grateful to our President, Henry, Earl of Arundel and Surrey for making it happen.
“Not only is Arundel Castle one of West Sussex’s top visitor attractions, but it is just three miles from the hospice, so is the ideal venue for a special birthday challenge event. So in our 15th year, let’s inspire everyone to live For the Now, take on a challenge and help us make every Now count. Join our waiting list now to ensure you’re the first to know when registration opens!”
Places are limited so join the waiting list before the end of February to be one of the first to be notified when registration opens: www.chestnut-tree-house.org.uk/arundelabseil
Make Chestnut Tree House’s 15th birthday a year for taking a leap. For doing something you never thought you could. Take on a challenge. For yourself. For local families. For living. For the Now.
Chestnut Tree House opened its doors on 11 November 2003 and currently provides care and support to around 300 children with life-shortening conditions and their families across Sussex and South East Hampshire – both at the hospice and in families’ own homes. The cost of providing this vital service is over £3.5 million per year, yet the hospice receives less than 7% central government funding so relies heavily on the generosity and support of the local community to continue providing vital care to local children and families.
