This Christmas, in place of customer gifts, we’re supporting one of our favourite local charities, Chestnut Tree House
Instead of our traditional gifts to our customers, this year we decided to donate to one of our favourite local charities, Chestnut Tree House. We know our customers will approve of our decision to donation to this admirable cause which, in addition to doing good in our community, will reduce the carbon footprint of sending parcels around the country – and the postman may also appreciate it!
Tributes Managing Director, Adam Masters was delighted to hand over the Christmas donation of five thousand pounds to Caroline Roberts-Quigley, Chestnut Tree’s Community Fundraiser for Arun, Worthing and Adur. “I am acutely aware of the difficulties faced over the last eighteen months” says Adam, “not only in terms of fundraising activities for Chestnut Tree House, but in service restrictions to those children with life restricting conditions that have been caused by the dangers of Coronavirus. With our Christmas gift to the children of Chestnut Tree we hope to offset some of those effects.”
Chestnut Tree House is very close to Tributes in location, being just across the road from us, in the lovely South Downs National Park. It is also close to our hearts as it has been incredibly supportive to Adam Masters and his family, through their grief journey after the loss of their lovely baby boy, Benjamin. While visiting Chestnut Tree today Adam took the opportunity to visit their Garden of Remembrance where a stone is laid in memory of Benjamin Philip Masters.
Chestnut Tree House cares for children with life-limiting conditions and their families. They take care of hundreds of children each year and creates space and opportunities for families who know they don’t have long together to live life to the full and say goodbye in a way that is right for them.
