Gear up for the challenge of a lifetime with Chestnut Tree House
Join our exclusive team of Chestnut’s Cambodia Challengers as you journey through the heart of old Indochina, exploring dazzling rice paddies and jungles dotted with ruins and temples to our spectacular finish at the renowned and impressive temple of Angkor Wat.
Starting in Siem Reap our adventurers will hike through rice fields, up Kulen Mountain and through jungles to reach the walled city of Angkor Thom and the spectacular Bayon temple, in the heart of the city. The challenge will be hot and dusty, but the famous smiles of this wonderfully welcoming country, with all its rich history and beautiful scenery, will make the hard work worth it.
Our exclusive team of Cambodia Challengers have a great challenge ahead; not only trekking 85km, but between them raising enough money to pay for all 24-hour care services, both at the hospice and in families own homes, for the entire duration of the trip.
Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for Sussex. Each year, we look after hundreds of local children with life-shortening conditions, their siblings and families, giving them the chance to live life to the full – for as much time as they have together.
The hospice costs over £3.5 million per year to run. Families are never charged for their care and less than 7p in every pound is funded by central government, so we rely heavily on the generosity, help and support of the people of Sussex.
Will you take on Chestnut’s Cambodia Challenge and help us make every step count for every child being cared for by Chestnut Tree House?
