700 Women Walk All Night to Raise Funds for Chestnut Tree House

When time calls for something out of the ordinary, brave souls stand up to take actions. This is evident from the fact that over 700 women managed to raise over £71,000 for the only Sussex children’s hospice, Chestnut Tree House. They did so walking nearly 10 miles from midnight till dawn in Eastbourne on 19 May.

Local community along with mothers whose children had received support from chestnut tree hospital participated in the walk. There were people like Jackie Hoadley, Marie Baker and Tandy Hearne who were doing it for the third time while Stacey Leigh was walking for the second year running.

Gemma Croucher was walking along with 30 friends and family in memory of Finlay said, “Chestnut Tree House helped us so much when Finlay died. They organized the funeral and had so much love and support for us, it was amazing. They really helped us get through it and tonight are our way of giving back to them”. Finlay had earlier died of a heart condition aged just 24 days exactly three months ago and his father Kevin was also a volunteer Marshall at the event.

Over the past two years, there have been hundreds of women who have taken to the streets and seafront of Eastbourne and raised a collective £203,000 for Chestnut Tree House.
