AS part of The Chaseley Trust’s 75th Anniversary, the charity has become a charity partner of the My Superhero Virtual 5k Run taking place on 28th April, National Superhero Day.

In 2020 all Chaseley fundraising events were cancelled and at present it is uncertain what actual fundraising events can, and will take place in 2021. 

So, with this in mind The Superhero Virtual 5k Run is the perfect opportunity for everyone to participate in an event and raise money for Chaseley, without having the risk of cancellation. 

There will be no large group gathering and you can choose when, where and how you complete the run, or walk if you prefer.

The best part of this virtual run is that it is free to enter and there are no hidden costs, unless you want a Superhero cape, mask, running number, and limited-edition medal, which can all be purchased at the time of registration. 

However, if you prefer, you can simply download one of their superhero masks for free and there are four different designs to choose from, or you can wear your own costume.

In addition, the team at My Superhero Virtual 5k Run are also attempting an unofficial world record attempt on the 28th April, so they will need your pictures!

75th Anniversary Fundraising Appeal

This fundraising appeal aims to modernise, update and refresh Chaseley and the funding will help Chaseley to:

  • Upgrade the Activate Gym
  • Upgrade the resident kitchens on each floor, including the Therapy kitchen which is used to support resident transition when their care path and ultimate plan is to move home
  • Replace the flooring throughout the building with a more hardwearing material
  • Complete a full building survey to enable Chaseley to plan their next 10 year maintenance schedule
  • Complete a variety of building works to ensure the home can be preserved for the next 75 years!

The Chaseley building is a complicated one that has been altered and extended over many years and with a property of this size and complexity it is important to future plan any building works, including maintenance, repairs and improvements.  With your help, we are sure that throughout 2021 we will be able to reach this target and ensure our residents continue to receive the excellent care they require, whilst living in a first class home that they deserve.
