We are delighted to support the team at Chestnut Tree House with a donation of 2000 items of protective equipment during these challenging times. This includes 1000 seat covers for the community support team and 1000 pairs of protective gloves.
Cameron Hancorn, Service Manager at our Chichester Service Department kindly delivered the PPE items to the Chestnut Tree House team, allowing them to continue their incredibly important work supporting children and their families.
Chestnut Tree House was first opened in 2003 and today cares for 300 life limited children. Alison Taylor, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Chestnut Tree House said: “On behalf of everyone at Chestnut Tree House, I would like to say a huge thank you for your wonderful donation of seat covers and gloves that you so kindly delivered to the house to enable our staff to continue to care for the families in a safe way. It means so much to have the support from our local community, even more so during this difficult time. It is really lovely to have your support during this time”.
On delivering the PPE items, Cameron said: “From the whole team at Frosts Cars, please accept our sincere thanks and gratitude for all the team at Chestnut are doing. We’ve worked with Chestnut before so are very much aware of the incredible work the team do day in and day out and more so during this difficult time. Please don’t ever underestimate the incredible work you’re all doing, we’re incredibly proud”.
Alison continued: “The care team are working so hard to provide all the care they can for families in their own homes, providing a much needed break for the parents. They are also helping with collections of medication, providing activity packs for the children tailored to their interests and being a shoulder to lean on in a time that is so uncertain for everyone. The house is still open for end of life care and bereavement support, and the nurses are making regular contact with the families too, via phone and video link”.
