Celebrations at Chestnut Tree House 10th Birthday Business Awards

I am thrilled to have won the award for Most Innovative Fundraising Idea at the Chestnut Tree House 10th Birthday Business Awards.  ‘Pay for a Day’ encourages both individuals and organisations to donate to the charity by laying bare the entire running costs for 24 hours care. For £6, 850 supporters can literally ‘Pay for a Day’ and understand in real terms the impact of their generosity.

The Chestnut Tree House Business Awards took place last Thursday at the South Lodge Hotel in Horsham and was a great night of celebrations for all.  The ceremony gave thanks to all those who have supported the charity over the last decade and below is the list of finalists shortlisted for awards:
