Rivervale Chooses Chestnut Tree House as Charity Partner for 2024

Rivervale, which provides leasing, purchasing, servicing and vehicle management for cars, vans and minibuses, is delighted to announce its partnership with Chestnut Tree House as the company’s chosen charity for 2024.

Several members of the Rivervale team recently visited Chestnut Tree House, a local children's hospice providing vital care for children with life-shortening conditions and their families. Touched by the inspiring work done at the hospice, Rivervale is committed to supporting Chestnut Tree House in their mission.

Throughout 2024, Rivervale has planned a series of fundraising events and initiatives to raise funds and awareness for Chestnut Tree House. These initiatives include a Golf Day, where participants can enjoy a day on the greens while contributing to a noble cause. Additionally, several Rivervale staff members will be taking part in the Brighton Marathon Weekend events, participating in both the Marathon and 10k run, demonstrating their dedication to making a positive impact in the community.

The year-long commitment extends to various staff-led fundraisers, including engaging coffee mornings and other exciting events to involve employees and foster a sense of community. Rivervale is also exploring innovative ways to get customers actively involved in supporting fundraising initiatives.

Vince Pemberton, Rivervale CEO, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, saying: "We are thrilled to be supporting Chestnut Tree House this year. Witnessing the incredible work they do has inspired us to step up and make a meaningful contribution. We believe in the power of community, and together with our staff and customers, we aim to make a significant difference in the lives of those supported by Chestnut Tree House."

This year, Rivervale has set an ambitious goal – to 'Pay for A Day' at Chestnut Tree House. The financial target of £7,500 covers the hospice’s running costs for 12 hours, and Rivervale aspires to go beyond that, hoping to fund a full 24-hour period of care. By achieving this goal, Rivervale aims to provide comprehensive support to Chestnut Tree House, ensuring continuous care for the children and families they serve.

Hannah Seltzer, partnerships engagement manager at Chestnut Tree House, said: “For the children and young people we care for, the opportunity to have fun and enjoy new experiences is priceless. However, it costs more than £5 million each year to provide all Chestnut Tree House’s specialist care services, with only a small percentage funded by government.

“We are so grateful for Rivervale’s generous support, which will help us add life to shortened years, enabling families to create magical memories together.”
