Amber recently visited Specsavers on Queens Road. The branch is one of eight of the Specsavers stores in Sussex working together this Christmas to collect toys and donations for Chestnut Tree House. Chestnut Tree House is a children’s hospice across East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove and South East Hampshire, caring for 300 children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-shortening conditions.
During the visit, Amber met with staff of the branch to discuss the toy collection and gave her own donation – a Parliamentary teddy bear named Boris.
“I was delighted to meet with the fantastic staff of our local Specsavers and to discuss the work they are doing this Christmas to support Chestnut Tree House.
“Chestnut Tree House are a fantastic organisation who are dedicated to supporting not only children but their whole family through end of life care. Their hard work to ensure that the best quality of life is provided for children and young people is inspiring and testament to the character of our towns’ residents.”
