Chestnut Tree House Ball on the 2nd December
Chestnut Tree is a children’s charity providing hospice care services and community support for children and young people with progressive life-shortening conditions throughout East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove and South East Hampshire.
There are potentially 1,000 families with life-limited children in Sussex. Chestnut Tree House offers support for the whole family. This 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. Families are never charged for their care and less than 7p in every pound is funded by the government. So Chestnut rely heavily on the generosity, help and support of the people of Sussex.
The Charities goal is to ensure the best quality of life, for the children, young people and their families in their care. To offer a total package of practical, social and spiritual support throughout each child’s life, however short it may be.
The Ball is the highlight of the Brighton social calendar. It is one of the largest charity events outside of London. Last year it was attended by 540 guests. We enjoyed an exclusive evening in a magical wonderland. This year we are proud to be supporting Chestnut Tree House once again.
“We are so proud at Get Waisted to be supporting Chestnut Tree House again this year”.
Last year the Ball raised a massive £532,314 and we at Get Waisted wanted to share a few photo’s of the night and a video of why it is such an important charity to suport.
We will be doing more in the run-up to the ball about this amazing charity and ways you could offer your support to this worthwhile charity.
