A COMPANY staged a Pier-to-Pier walk and raised more than £1,000 for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.

This is the third year CDS Electrical, based in Polegate, has organised the event.

More than 30 people took on the 15.2 mile challenge from Eastbourne Pier to Hastings Pier.

They were walking to raise funds for Chestnut Tree House, the children’s hospice for Sussex.

It is a charity that CDS has regularly supported over the years, and one close to MD irector Corin Dudley’s heart.

He said: “Friends of ours are supported by Chestnut Tree House so it is a charity that we feel very passionately about.”

Mikayla Bernstein, from Chestnut Tree House spoke briefly about the charity’s 15 year history.

She said: “We are really proud to have been caring for children and families across Sussex for the past 15 years.

”This has only been possible due to the amazing support from people like CDS and everyone taking part in the Pier-to-Pier walk, I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you.”
