Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice has accepted a cheque from Waitrose.

Tracey Luker , head of appeals for East Sussex at Chestnut Tree, was presented with a cheque for £274 by Lisa Pearce at Waitrose in Old Town.

The money was raised through the supermarket’s Community Matters scheme, with customers choosing to support Chestnut Tree with their green tokens.

Tara Salmon, operations manager at Eastbourne Waitrose, said, “The Eastbourne Branch of Waitrose are delighted to support Chestnut Tree Hospice as part of our community matters programme.

“It’s fantastic that our customers raised £274 for such a worthy cause.”

Tracey Luker said, “We would like to thank all of the customers at Waitrose for supporting us.

“We are currently caring for 55 children with life-shortening conditions in East Sussex and are aiming to double this number; every penny we receive in donations helps us towards this goal.”
