13th December 2017
This year at Upper Beeding Primary School we are grabbing our antlers and holding our very own Reindeer Run on Wednesday 13th December in aid of Chestnut Tree House, the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire.
For just £1, your child will be given their very own set of reindeer antlers and a flashing red nose to wear as they run. They will also be given a Chestnut Tree House special sponsorship envelope to gather as much sponsorship as possible, from their friends and family at home, to support local life-limited children.
At 9 o’clock the challenge will begin! In classes the children will collect their antlers and begin their fun run around the track marked out on the playground, supporting each other as they go. You never know, Father Christmas might even make a guest appearance!
As you may already know, Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire. They care for life-limited children both at the House, and in families’ own homes.
It currently costs well over £3million per year to provide all of their FREE care services yet they receive less than 7% of their funding from central government. This means they need to raise 93p in every £1 through fundraising, and it is because of events like this that they are able to continue to provide this vital care to local children and families.
This is a very exciting event, that we are very proud to be taking part in as a school. We will be taking lots of photographs that will be posted on the school website for you to see.
Thank you in advance for your support; it really is very much appreciated.
