Chestnut Tree House cares for 300 children in the South East, 60 of whom are in East Sussex, all of whom are unlikely to reach adulthood. Their Community Nursing Team visit families at home, taking children out to explore their local community or simply giving tired families and carers the chance to take a well-earned break.

Andy Harvey, Centre Manager at Priory Meadow, said: “2018 was the first year we introduced a Giving Tree and the team were completely overwhelmed with the number of gifts received. We hope that the community can come together again to purchase presents for children that deserve some extra Christmas cheer.

“On behalf of Priory Meadow and Chestnut Tree House, we would like to thank you in advance for your support and wish a very merry Christmas.” He added.

Shoppers can select a tag from the tree located outside M&S, purchase a suitable gift, then take the gift and tag to the management office located on the first floor between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

The management team will arrange for the gifts to be presented to Chestnut Tree House in time for the big day. The last day to donate your gift is Thursday December 17th.
