Anniversary celebrations for Tree of Hope


Tree Of Hope celebrates Its 25th anniversary with a sporting heroes charity lunch at The Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells on Friday 13th October

Children’s charity Tree of Hope will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary in October. Tree of Hope helps children and young people with a disability or illness, by supporting their families to raise the funds they need to pay for specialist care that is not freely available through the UK healthcare system.

Celebrations for the charity will start with a special lunch on Friday 13th October at the Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells. It has just been announced that Chris Cowdrey, Kent and England Cricket Captain will be there as will John Taylor and Rob Andrew who are Lions Rugby personalities, along with a number of other sporting legends. There will be an opportunity to ask them questions about their careers and to chat about the recent Lions tour. More names will be added shortly.

Chris Cowdrey, former Kent & England Cricket Captain comments: “As someone living locally and the father of twin boys, I have been aware of the tremendous work Tree of Hope does to raise funds for children suffering from a disability or illness for .some time. All children are incredibly special and I wanted to pledge my support in whatever way I could to help this amazing charity to continue their great work”.

John Taylor, former Welsh & British Lions Rugby Player and current commentator comments: “The toughest thing is to have a sick child and know it’s out of your control. This is where Tree of Hope comes in, as they help children with a disability or illness by supporting their families to raise funds for specialist care.”

Tables are available at £750 or £1,000 with a Sports Hero and seat 10 people. Alternatively you can book a group of 4 for £300. For further information or to book call 07846 740378 or email
