How we raise funds

It’s important for us to continue fundraising, especially in this difficult time. The demand for our care services is high and our income has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, we’ve partnered with the following face-to-face fundraising agencies to sign-up new players for the Chestnut Tree House Lottery: One Sixty, ISS, Engage and Connect Ltd.

We haven't taken the decision lightly to re-launch our face-to-face activities. We stopped fundraising in March 2020. In April 2021, we cautiously resumed face-to-face fundraising while following government guidelines and guidance from the Fundraising Regulator. We're continuing to adhere to government and industry guidelines and are closely monitoring our fundraising activities.

Our fundraisers display identification badges and will be wearing Chestnut Tree House branded clothing. You can call us on 01903 871842 to check a fundraiser's credentials. We're also working with the telephone fundraising agency DTV Optimise who calls people to promote the Chestnut Tree House Lottery.

We're proud of the dedication, professionalism, and knowledge our fundraisers have. If you feel that a fundraiser is not representing us well, is not courteous, appears to be pushy or if you have any other concerns, please let us know immediately. Thank you.
