Knockhatch Ski and Snowboard Centre is hosting an evening of late-night skiing on Saturday, July 26 to raise money for Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice.
For experienced skiers and snowboarders, the event offers the chance to enjoy six hours of open practice on the slopes, while for those with little or no experience, the Ringo Run will also be open.
All proceeds from the night will go towards Chestnut Tree House, which is Knockhatch’s chosen charity of the year. Chestnut Tree House provides specialist palliative care services to 300 children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.
Managing director of Knockhatch, Colin Jaggers, said, “Chestnut Tree House was the first charity we thought of when choosing our charity of the year.
“As a children’s charity who do vital work in the local community we felt strongly that we should support them and are keen to raise as much for them as possible.”
Tickets for the event cost £20 per person and include six hours of open practice skiing or snowboarding, equipment hire, pizza and a drink.
Knockhatch Ski and Snowboard Centre is an outdoor dry slope based in Hailsham, with 110m of artificial ski slope. The centre has been open since 2001 and since then, has expanded with a nursery slope and Ringo Run, plus a second drag lift.
The centre hosts ski and snowboard lessons, parties, corporate events and teambuilding sessions.
