A children's charity is calling on fundraisers to don their running shoes.

Chestnut Tree House is encouraging marathon runners to join its team for next year’s Brighton marathon, which takes place on Sunday April 12.

The marathon, Britain’s second largest, has already closed for public entries - however the charity still has places available for fundraisers.

Its aim is to recruit 300 runners for its fundraising team - one for each child that Chestnut Tree House cares for.

Everyone that runs as part of Chestnut Tree House’s team is given fundraising tips, training seminars, group training sessions, a pre-race pasta party, post-race reception with refreshments and massages. Running and raising money for Chestnut Tree House makes a huge difference to the hundreds of children and young people from across Sussex and south east Hampshire who use the charity each year.

The children, aged up to 19-years-old, all have progressive life-limiting conditions and receive not only specialist care and symptom management from the nursing team, but also use facilities including a hydrotherapy pool and multi-sensory room.
