Estate agents to tackle Great Sussex Bath Race in support of Chestnut Tree House

Mon 06 Jun 2016

Four local estate agents are set to take part in the spectacular Great Sussex Bath Race this month in order to raise funds for Chestnut Tree House and Life Centre.

Josh Weller and Chloe McAteer from Leaders’ Horsham branch, as well as Ian Colban from the company’s Chichester office and Turner Reynolds from the Littlehampton team, will be competing in the bath tub raft-racing tournament at a private lake near Chichester on Sunday 12th June.

The event features a battle to make the Grand Final, an adrenalin-fuelled Demolition Derby and an opportunity for teams to decorate their bath tub. It is designed for the local business community and each team of four is tasked with raising a minimum of £1,000 for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice in Arundel and Life Centre.

Ian Colban, branch manager at Leaders in Chichester, says: “All four of us in the Leaders team are looking forward to this year’s Great Sussex Bath Race. Not only is it always a fun-filled day, it provides a unique chance for us to put our strength, intelligence and team work to the test.

“The Great Sussex Bath Race has become one of the most exciting events on the calendar for those of us in the Sussex business community and we are delighted to be supporting it.

“Most importantly, we will be aiming to raise as much money as possible for two fantastic local causes - Chestnut Tree House and Life Centre. As part of Leaders’ charity partnership with Together for Short Lives, we have been privileged to witness the work of those at Chestnut Tree House and hope to do all we can to help.”

Together for Short Lives is the umbrella charity for all 54 children’s hospices across the UK, including Chestnut Tree House. It offers specialist care and support for children and young people living with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

Leaders named Together for Short Lives as its Charity of the Year in 2015 and raised a total of £45,000. It renewed the partnership for 2016 and is aiming to raise a further £50,000 this year.
