Rudridge in Horsham has raised £250 on behalf of local charity Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice in Arundel.

The team at the civil engineering and groundwork material specialists, located on Handcross Road, took part in a range of fundraising activities during December including selling homemade cakes.

Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for Sussex and cares for 300 children and young adults with progressive life-shortening conditions.

It currently costs more than £3.5 million each year to provide care services both at the hospice and in families’ own homes.

Terrina Barnes, corporate fundraiser at Chestnut Tree House, said: “We’re very grateful to Rudridge for raising funds on behalf of Chestnut Tree House.

“It is donations from companies like Rudridge that make it possible to continue providing support for the children and their families.”

John Chesson, branch manager at Rudridge Horsham, added: “Chestnut Tree House provides such amazing support for the local community and to many families in Sussex.

“They do a phenomenal job – we are very proud to be supporting them.”
