Andrews estate agents in Eastbourne threw open their doors for a Christmas event to help raise much-needed funds for charity.
There were a number of events on the day including Sponge the Estate Agent, live music from Eastbourne Silver Band and Voices Choir, and a huge raffle with more than 45 prizes donated by local businesses and business partners.
Andrews, which holds a charity event each year, was supporting Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice, The Beachy Head Chaplaincy, Macmillan and its own Project 70 initiative.
Mark Gausden, branch manager at Andrews, said, “Myself and my team at Andrews are delighted to be able to support Chestnut Tree.
“We raise money every year for worthy causes and the work they do is outstanding, it is a pleasure to be able to contribute.”
Tracy Luker, head of fundraising at Chestnut Tree, said, “We would like to say a massive thank you to all at Andrews for choosing to support us and raising such a fantastic amount.
“It currently costs more than £3.5 million to provide all of our care services, and less than seven per cent of this is funded by central government, so the support of local businesses and the community are vital in helping us to continue offering this care.”
Chestnut Tree House provides specialist palliative care services to 300 children and young people aged 19 and under with life-shortening condition
Chestnut Tree House also offers support at family homes and bereavement support which includes therapy, counselling and spiritual care.
