Ashdown Park raises over £1,900 for local charity Chestnut Tree House
The cheque was presented to the charity during a coffee morning event at the Forest Row hotel in December, attended by members of the charity and Ashdown Park’s non-resident local community. Guests bought along homemade mince pies as part of the coffee morning, which were taste-tested by the hotel’s executive head chef, Andrew Wilson.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2019, Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice provides hospice care services and community support to children and young people with life-shortening conditions throughout East and West Sussex, Brighton, Hove and South East Hampshire.
On receiving the cheque Mikayla Bernstein, corporate fundraiser at Chestnut Tree House, commented: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Ashdown Park who supported us. It costs more than £3.9 million every year to offer care to local children with life-shortening conditions and their families, and we receive less than 6% of this from central government. This means that support from local businesses like Ashdown Park is really important in allowing us to continue offering care.”
General manager at Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club, Ben Booker, commented, “We are delighted to have raised almost £2,000 since February 2017 for our local hospice, Chestnut Tree House and have really enjoyed hosting a variety of events here at the hotel, in celebration of the fantastic work they do for our community.”
