CHARITY TODAY AWARDS

Peter Andre drops in for video call with children’s hospice

PETER Andre was planning to visit Chestnut Tree House during Children’s Hospice Week (22-28 June), but sadly that wasn’t possible. So instead, he dropped in via video call on Wednesday to catch up with Izzy, Loui and Karen, who he has met on previous visits to the children’s hospice.

Peter became a Patron of Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice in Sussex and Together for Short Lives, the UK charity for seriously ill children and children’s hospices, in January last year.

Peter said:

“I’m really blown away by the work of Chestnut Tree House and Together for Short Lives, and am proud to be a Patron of both charities. Children’s hospices are such special, vital places, but I think a lot of people don’t really understand what they are or the many different ways they support children and families. It was lovely to catch up with Izzy and Loui to see how they’re getting on, and hopefully, I’ll be able to visit Chestnut Tree House again soon.”

As well as the video call, Peter recorded a message to all the children and families supported by children’s hospices up and down the country. He also thanked the care teams for the amazing work they do supporting families.

Chestnut Tree House said:

“From the first time Peter Andre visited the hospice, he instantly understood what we’re all about. He shows genuine interest in the work we do and the families we care for, and always makes sure he spends time with everyone. We are incredibly grateful for Peter’s support as our Patron and hope that it helps more people to see what wonderful and vital places children’s hospices like Chestnut Tree House are. Peter is passionate about making a difference, and visits like this – even if it had to be virtual this time – help create special memories for our children and families, which is something you can’t put a price on.”
