Chestnut Tree House – The North Downs Marathon

In just 5 weeks’ time, Techlive will be walking the 25+ miles along the North Downs between Merstham and Guildford in aid of Chestnut Tree House.

Chestnut Tree House is a hospice and support service for children and young adults with life-limiting conditions. The charity supports over 300 children and young adults up to the age of 19 years old. Life-limiting conditions often come with many complications,  as a result, it is not just the person with the condition that suffers. As a result, families often struggle with multiple children, much-needed respite, and enjoying their time with their child/young adult. Most importantly, Chestnut Tree House ensures support for the entire family. This is by providing services such as counseling, coffee mornings, community care, and advanced educational tools. The charity aids families with the crucial quality of life care in their day-to-day lives.

The charity has to raise over £3.9M yearly, to provide its services. In fact, the Daily costs amount to £6,850. The services provided are at no cost to the family and the government cover less than 7p per pound required. As a result, the charity heavily relies upon donations for the incredible care they provide.

For this reason, on June 18th Techlive together with members of the SCCI group and partners will be embarking on a marathon walk along the North Downs.  to raise the cost of one day’s operations at the house.
