Children from Worthing United Youth FC will be aiming to raise £10,000 for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice by completing a 24-hour bed push along Worthing seafront.
It will take place this Saturday and Sunday.
The charity bed-push will see teams of youngsters, aged 5-16, push their parents, Worthing United Youth FC managers, and local VIPs, 1.5km from Worthing to Goring and back again. “We will be completing the bed-push over a 24-hour period,” says Jason Nicholls, Chairman at Worthing United Youth FC. “We aim to set off at 10am on Saturday, push the bed along the seafront until about 10pm, then start again at 6am on Sunday!
“Everyone at Worthing United Youth FC is so excited to fundraise for Chestnut Tree House,” says Jason. “We wanted to think of a fundraising event that we could all get involved in, including children, siblings, parents, and grandparents! And the bed-push is perfect for that.
“Chestnut Tree House is such a worthy charity,” continues Jason. “We’re aiming to raise £10,000 to pay for the entire running costs of the hospice service for one day! So please, come and pay us a visit to show your support when we are doing the bed-push, we will be stationed at Worthing Pier and would love to see you there.”
