John Wright is Flying High for Chestnut Tree House
Posted on 8th March 2020
John Wright, owner of it'seeze Web Design Horsham, will be strapped to a biplane which will fly at 135mph when he completes a wing walk to raise money for Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice later this year.
As the outgoing Chairman of Bilingshurst & Horsham Chamber of Commerce (BHCC), John will be following in the footsteps of previous Chairman Chris Cooper by raising funds for BHCC's nominated charity Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice.
John will be doing a wing walk on 5th September 2020 at Damyns Hall Aerodrome in Upminster, Essex, with the aim to raise at least £2,500 for Chestnut Tree House.
Based in Arundel, West Sussex, Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove, and South East Hampshire and cares for 300 children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-shortening conditions.
The following provides some examples of how this fundraising could help children and their families:
£50 will give a child the opportunity to spend an hour benefiting from a swim in the hydrotherapy pool. So £250 will give this opportunity to five children.
£150 will allow a family of four to benefit from an overnight stay in one of the Family Rooms whilst their child is cared for by the specially trained nurses. So £450 will give three families this support.
£230 gives a child the chance to visit Chestnut Tree House for the day for a “Stay and Play” session. They will be able to enjoy the facilities and a range of activities whilst giving mum and dad a break from the daily care. So £460 will fund two children.
£856.80 could pay for nursing care for a child for 24 hours.
£887 will allow a nurse to support a family immediately following bereavement, helping them to plan the funeral and to say their final goodbyes to their child.
£960 will cover the costs of three individual children having eight weekly sessions with the Child and Young Person’s Psychotherapist or Family Counsellor. This can be at any time, to help them pre or post bereavement of a sibling.
£1,137 will pay for a Siblings Activity Day. This is a dedicated activity day for siblings either at Chestnut Tree House or out in the community and is a chance for them to give up their roles as carers and unpaid nurses, forget their day-to-day worries, and simply run around and play just like any other child.
If you would like to donate, and help Chestnut Tree House to provide hospice care services and community support for children and young people with progressive life-shortening conditions, please do so at John's Just Giving page.
