Darren said: “The donation is from our company’s Echo Trust charity to give something back to our local community. We hold regular collections at the club and our customers are always generous. We nominated this special cause to benefit because of its amazing work with children and their families.”

Amber Lilly, corporate fundraiser at Chestnut Tree House said: “We are so grateful to Moka Crawley and the Echo Trust for their generous support. Chestnut Tree House cares for around 300 children and young people with life-shortening conditions across Sussex and South East Hampshire, and we rely heavily on the support of our local community to continue providing our vital specialist care services. This grant has made a huge difference by paying for some essential medical equipment to be used by our care team, and on behalf of everyone at Chestnut Tree House, I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you.”

Moka is part of The Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of late night bars and clubs, which employs 3000 people across its 54 venues. Since 2002 when Deltic set up the Echo Trust it has raised more than £2.5 million to grant awards to local children’s charities and children’s hospitals.
