My Choice Children’s Homes Charity Work 2021

Part of our mission is to engage and encourage our children in charity work and learn about giving to others in the local community.  This provides the children a real sense of empathy and understanding.

My Choice Children’s Homes are committed to charity work, sponsorship and fundraising events. Our passion is supporting local children, and settings.

For the last 5 years My Choice Childrens Homes have sponsored local football clubs;

  • Barns Green Youth Football Club
  • Burgess Hill Youth football club
  • Littlehampton Youth Football Club

We are proud to support local children’s sporting groups and to be part of the local community.

Since 2020 My Choice Childrens Homes have supported a local charity who work with children and families.

The charity we are supporting and fundraising for is Chestnut Tree House.

We believe that there is no better way of giving back than to work with such a significant charity like Chestnut Tree House.

Chestnut Tree House is a children’s charity providing hospice care services and community support for children and young people with progressive life-shortening conditions in East and West Sussex and Southeast Hampshire. The work Chestnut Tree House provides is truly outstanding, and they are a real inspiration to us all.

We at My Choice Childrens homes wanted to provide them with as many gifts and treats this Christmas as we could, we shared our mission to the local community and appealed on social media. Numerous local individuals and businesses were quick to respond, and we have received many wrapped gifts for the children at Chestnut Tree House.

We were contacted by Kevin and Lucian at Sussex Barn in Horsham who wanted to collaborate with us on this worthwhile appeal. They have kindly offered to provide a Christmas Giving Tree, to help with gathering toys for the children at the Hospice, along with a charity Christingle Evening on 18th December 2021. Sussex Barn will join us in a charity raffle, and the giving of all donations that we have gathered to Chestnut Tree House.

“My Choice Children’s Homes couldn’t be prouder of how so many people have come together to give to such a worthwhile charity. Our children inspire us every day, and in doing this they become part of something so incredible and meaningful”

Local companies are still approaching us, and we hope to continue to work with others on making this appeal as far reaching as possible.

We are currently working with Sussex Barn, Acorn Sales and Lettings, WasteClearance 24/7, CJ’s Family Café, Milo and Meg, Burgess Hill Youth Football Club, Ultimate Training and MacFarlane Packaging.

We have drop off points for donated gifts across West Sussex, and welcome support through giving gifts to the children and staff at the hospice or offering raffle prizes.

We are especially excited to receive the following donations:

  • New Toys
  • New Lego
  • New Arts and Crafts
  • Treats for the staff and families
  • And raffle prizes

We encourage our staff to support this charity individually or as part of the team.
