Saturday is the night of our Night to Remember Midnight Walk in Eastbourne!
Our Events Team is busy getting everything ready and putting the finishing touches to the plans.
Night to Remember is a huge event for us as it helps us spread the word about Chestnut Tree House into the East Sussex area.
For those of you who don’t know – Night to Remember is a ladies only 4 or 10 mile midnight walk along Eastbourne’s streets and seafront.
Over the past four years, more than 2,400 ladies have taken on the challenge and raised a collective £292,000 for Chestnut Tree House, the only children’s hospice in Sussex.
After an energetic warm up, the walk will start on the promenade at The Sovereign Centre in Eastbourne. After walking along the promenade to Sovereign Harbour and looping around, our ladies will then make their way towards Holywell and back to the Sovereign Centre, taking in the beautiful sight of Eastbourne Pier at night.
Ladies opting for the four-mile route will return to the Sovereign Centre after the harbour route.
Sponsor money raised from the walk is spent in many ways, including:
£157 pays for a hospice nurse to visit a child at home in East Sussex
£285 pays for one hour of all our hospice care services in Sussex
£651 pays for a one night stay for a child at the hospice
£1,953 pays for end of life care in the home for a young baby
So, if you are in Eastbourne on Saturday night, look out for the sea of ladies in their purple Night to Remember t-shirts. And if you are taking part, we look forward to seeing you there and making it a night to remember!
