‘Cavendish raise £465 for Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice’
On Sunday 9th April, Lucy and Sarah from the Cavendish team joined the Chestnut Tree House charity in running Brighton’s BM10K.
The BM10K takes place annually in Brighton, and is part of the massive event that is the Brighton Marathon. Thousands of people partake in this event every year, with many choosing to raise money for their chosen charity in the process. This race is hugely popular due to it being fast and flat, with scenic views of Brighton seafront. Starting in Preston Park, the route dwindles through Brighton’s city centre, with the finish line situated not too far from the Palace Pier.
The day was a huge success, with perfect weather and a huge buzz amongst the whole city. Not only did both our team members managed to raise an amazing £465 so far, but achieved personal challenges with it being their first ever run.
Chestnut Tree House is a children’s charity providing hospice care services and community support for children and young people with progressive life-shortening conditions. There are potentially 1,000 families with life-limited children in Sussex. Chestnut Tree House offers support for the whole family including psychological and bereavement support, end of life and short break care and sibling support.
It currently costs well over £3.5m each year to provide all the care services provided by Chestnut Tree House. We love to raise funds as much as we can to support Chestnut Tree House in achieving their goal of supporting as many families as possible.
