Brighton Marathon Weekend 2018
Join us outside the Mercure Seafront Hotel, Kings Road supporting all the runners for the 2018 Brighton Marathon on Sunday 15th April.
Starting at Preston Park, the 26.2 mile course takes runners through the city and surrounding areas. This spectacular afternoon was enjoyed by over 150,000 spectators last year, and continues to get bigger and better.
Juice In Association With Chestnut Tree House
Chestnut Tree House 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.
On a visit to the House, kids can be astronauts for the day in the multi-sensory room, discover creepy crawlies on a woodland walk, or form their very own pop group in the music room. It is a place where parents can just be parents, and not carers, and where siblings have people to talk to who understand.
As well as care provided at the House, there is also a Chestnut Tree Community Nursing Team who visit families at home, taking children out to explore their local community or simply giving tired families and carers the chance to take a well-earned break.
Then, when the time comes, Chestnut Tree House helps families say goodbye, in whatever way feels right for them, either at home or in the hospice itself. They offer ongoing bereavement support for the whole family.
It costs Chestnut Tree House well over £3.5 million every year to provide all its specialist care services and less than 7% of that comes from central Government. They never charge families a penny, so rely heavily on the generosity of the local community.
The money raised from events like the Brighton Marathon makes a huge difference, and helps Chestnut Tree House continue to care for local children and young people with life-shortening conditions.
Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice will celebrate its 15th birthday this November. The House first 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 community to continue providing vital care to children and families.
Chestnut Tree House helps families live For the Now. They are the hand that reassures, a hug that comforts, a safe port in a sea of life-changing diagnoses and round the clock care.
Now is precious moments that give a lifetime of memories, the chance to be a parent for a few hours, rather than a carer, and the opportunity for kids to just be kids, to do all the things that kids their age should do.
Now is all about exploring, creating, enjoying and treasuring. And for our supporters it’s all about the high of doing something important, something that they didn’t think they could do. It’s about making their own memories whilst making a difference.
Chestnut Tree House. For local families. For living. For the Now.
