England cricketer Matt Prior is calling on people to support Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice by taking part in the Chestnut Sussex 100 cycle ride which partly travels through Wealden.

Having completed his own 100-mile cycle challenge for Chestnut Tree House in 2012, Matt said he is passionate about the work that the charity does. He said: “As a Patron of Chestnut Tree House, I have seen for myself the wonderful care they provide for children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses – and their families – right across Sussex.”

The Chestnut Sussex 100 will take place on October 12 and anyone over the age of 18 (over 16s can participate if accompanied by an adult) can enter. Starting at Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum in Halland, cyclists can choose between a 60km or 100km distance through the Ashdown Forest. To register:
