Book now for an outdoor swim for Sussex Children’s Hospice

Chestnut Tree House has started Wild Wood Swim and is looking for participants to swim in open water for 1km, 3km or 5km to raise funds.

Wild Wood Swim will take place over the summer holidays, Monday August 29, at Weir Wood Reservoir in Ashdown Forest, and the money raised will help support local children and families in need of palliative care.

Georgie Packer of Chestnut Tree House said: “1K is perfect for people who want to try something new and challenge themselves as you will be supported every step of the way.

Wild Wood Swim raises money for a new hydrotherapy pool

“Or, if you’re thinking of taking the next big step on your open water swimming journey, the 3K and 5K options will have training plans and tips to help you take it to the next level.”

Registration for Wild Wood Swim costs £45 and Chestnut Tree House asks participants to raise at least £175.

Georgie added: “If we ask families which activity they enjoy the most while visiting Chestnut Tree House, splashing in the hydrotherapy pool will often come out on top.

“By raising £175 you can help three children and their families spend time in our hydrotherapy pool with a specialist nurse, splashing around, having fun and making memories that will last a lifetime.”
