Charity Shop Birthday

Our Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice charity shop in West Street, Havant, celebrates its 5th birthday in June.

Our CEO of Chestnut Tree House, Hugh Lowson, attended a party at the shop together with staff, volunteers, customers and donors.

Shop Manager, Jacquie Neale, and the team encouraged everyone to write a birthday message on their Chestnut Tree House paper chain to send to the children, young people and families who use the hospice. Made up of colourful sunshine yellow links, the paper chain was on display at the shop during the birthday celebrations and then presented to Chestnut Tree House. It is on view in Reception for children, families, staff and volunteers to read and enjoy the lovely messages of support from the local community.

Our Havant shop is our only Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice shop in South East Hampshire. Last year Chestnut Tree House cared for 39 children in the local area, both at the hospice and through a dedicated team of Community Nurses delivering care in families’ own homes.

The shop is situated at 6 West Street, Havant PO9. Telephone: 023 9247 8668.
