Special Christmas Lights Switch On For Children’s Hospice
Christmas began at Chestnut Tree House as children, families, staff and volunteers gathered to switch on the lights on the giant Christmas tree outside the hospice.
The tree, a 17 foot high Norwegian Spruce, was generously donated by a Worthing landscaping company. The tree has been decorated with an incredible 350 LED pixels, kindly donated by a Worthing based company. These are very special lights as they are brand new in the UK and each bulb is individually fully customisable. At the touch of a button, each light can be programmed to change colour, flash, fade or chase, and all the lights together can be choreographed to produce a stunning lightshow. As part of the display the lights on the hospice’s tree have been programmed to reflect Chestnut Tree House’s colours of saffron gold with teal sparkles.
The lights were switched on during the children’s Christmas party on Friday 9 December by Santa Claus who made a special early visit to the hospice to join in the fun and deliver presents for the children and young people.
