Our Events Team are a very special, hardworking group of people. Along with our Fundraisers, they help to organise, support and execute events across Sussex to help raise vital funds for Chestnut Tree House.
These events take many months of planning – ensuring the suitability and safety of the venues, organising road closures etc to accommodate them and also providing on-going support for the participants, helping them with ideas for fundraising and keeping them motivated at the eleventh hour! This weekend will see 25,000 people take part in the Ride London 100 mile cycle, a now firmly established event.
We have a group of people taking part, raising funds specifically for Chestnut Tree House, and would like to wish them all good luck and convey our thanks for their support. As well as group events like this, we also organise our own cycle challenges. In September we will be holding the annual Chestnut Sussex 100 – now in its third year – with cyclists taking to the roads of East Sussex, choosing from a distance of 32km, 66km or 103km.
As well as rides in this country we are also expanding! In October we are holding our first European tour, with cyclists riding from Chestnut Tree House to Paris over four days. Whilst these challenges are quite new to the events schedule they are building in popularity as people decide to take on a new adventure in their lives.
If you would like to take part in a cycling event, and raise money for the children’s hospice for Sussex please see our website for details of these exciting challenges or call our Events Team on 01903 706354 for more information.
