We are pleased to announce that Matt Turner, our CEO has been named as one of the honorary Patrons for Sussex children’s hospice, Chestnut Tree House, as part of its 15th birthday celebrations. Chestnut Tree House cares for life-limited children in Sussex and South East Hampshire, providing essential support for those with life-threatening conditions and their families.
Matt has been named alongside model Jodie Kidd, footballer Bruno Salter, and singer Chesney Hawkes (just to name a few). Matt has worked with Chestnut Tree House for many years and has taken part in many of their events to help raise funds for this vital charity. These include everything from jumping off Worthing pier, to taking on the role of Danny Zuko with a Grease medley performance at the 2017 Midsummer Ball.
Matt Turner said: “Being asked to be a Patron, is a tremendous honour and to say I am proud, is an understatement! Chestnut Tree House is a charity which I have worked with for years and is one that is very close to my heart. I look forward to the work we can do together in 2018.”
Linda Perry, Director of Children’s Services at Chestnut Tree House, said: “Our Patrons are great ambassadors for Chestnut Tree House, offering a range of support and advice, and we look forward to working with our honorary 15th birthday patrons during 2018.”
