How your support makes children's hospice care happen

Thanks to you children with life-shortening conditions can just be children.

It costs over £4 million each year to provide all of Chestnut Tree House’s care services for children and families. We receive a small proportion of our care costs from the central government. The rest is down to the generosity of supporters like our Lottery Players. 

Whether it’s getting messy with arts and crafts, exploring their local communities, or relaxing in the multi-sensory room, your support helps children make the most of the short time they have.

When the pandemic hit, our Lottery fundraising activities were cancelled or postponed resulting in a big drop in income. Your generosity, along with government grants, meant that we were able to cover our care costs last year. However, the future looks very uncertain, and we expect to have a shortfall over the next few years. Support from our Lottery Players is now more important than ever to ensure that local children who need hospice care continue to receive it.

Will you join our weekly Lottery from just £1 a week and help care for local children with life-shortening conditions and their families?
