Hurst Prep School have raised over £2,000 for charity by holding a fun run at the school.

On Monday 2 March pupils presented a certificate and cheque to a representative of Chestnut Tree House.

A total of £2,138.60 was split between the charities Chestnut Tree House Hospice, MIND, NSPCC and Young Epilepsy.

The presentation took place at Hurstpierpoint College after a talk from Jayne Todd, Community Fundraiser for Chestnut Tree House, about how the donation will help children and their families at the hospice.

Chestnut Tree House is the only children’s hospice in Sussex and cares for over 300 children and young adults with progressive life-shortening conditions. The care services at Chestnut Tree House also extend to the whole family.

Pupils in Lowes House chose their fundraising event last term, which involved a Reindeer Run in December. The 73 pupils ran around the Prep School Astro pitch wearing antlers and flashing red noses. They also held an own-clothes day and cake sale to raise extra funds for the charities.
