CELEBRITY Peter Andre has agreed to be Patron for two charities.

He will support Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice and Together for Short Lives, a UK charity for seriously ill children and children’s hospices.

The announcement follows Peter’s appearances at the Together for Short Lives’ and Disney Nutcracker Ball in November, and Chestnut Tree House’s Snowman Spectacular Fundraising Ball in December, pictured.

Peter Andre visited the hospice near Arundel.

He said: “It was so different to what I thought it was going to be.

“It has an incredible atmosphere – you walk in and everything is so calm and everyone is smiling, and definitely no hospital feeling about it.

“Children have the space to just be children, and parents can relax and spend quality time with their child knowing that there are others to help.

“And it’s not just about the care Chestnut Tree House gives while the children are here. Families can come in a year later, two years later; they’re always welcome.

“I’m blown away by the work of Chestnut Tree and Together for Short Lives.”
