Are you looking for a fun way to get fit and also raise money for a local charity?

Have you considered signing up for a 5k or 10k walk, or maybe even a half or full marathon?

Did you know that here at The Chaseley Trust we have access to a variety of challenge events including The Paris and Brighton Marathons in April, The Brighton Trail running and walking events in June, as well as the 5k inflatable at Goodwood and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park half Marathon later in the year.

You can sign up to any of these on our events page on our website:

Everyone who signs up will get dedicated support from our team, a Chaseley running vest as well as promotion of their challenge across our website and Social Media pages.

If these type of events are not for you, why not host your own fundraiser? Maybe a cake sale at your work or school, a pub quiz down your local, an inter-office challenge or maybe even a sponsored head shave? Whatever ideas you may have contact our Fundraising & Marketing Manager Jodie and she will be able to assist you.

The main source of Chaseley’s funding comes from residents’ fees, which cover the cost of their care package and contributes to the daily running costs of the home. Various commissioning bodies fund the majority of resident care packages and they have just 5% surplus to fund all their additional costs, including the upkeep of their beautiful building, upgrading their equipment, and to provide the extra social and recreational activities and services that enhance the comfort and well-being of their residents, which is why they rely on donations and fundraising.

Chaseley is an independent charity-owned care home located in a stunning location on Eastbourne’s seafront. It is a 55-bed home that specialises in long-term nursing and respite care for people with complex disabilities, such as Acquired and Traumatic Brain Injury, stroke, spinal cord injury and degenerative neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone and Parkinson’s disease.

Their multi-disciplinary approach to care and rehabilitation includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy and recreational activities, ensuring their person-centred approach is focused on individuals regaining as much independence as possible, so that their psychological well-being and emotional balance are maintained. In addition to this their facilities included an on-site, fully accessible gym specifically designed for people who are disabled and living in the community.

If you feel that you could support Chaseley by making them your Charity of the Year or potentially host an event on their behalf, please contact Jodie on 01323 744200 or
