MTB Hit The Downs 2022

Hit the Downs MTB is the annual off-road mountain bike event for Chestnut Tree House and St Barnabas House.

Background and Brief

Hit the Downs MTB is the only charity fundraising mountain bike event in Sussex.

Participants choose to ride either a 30km or 80km circular route through the beautiful Sussex Downs, following one of a number of different routes.

This year our brief was to produce all marketing materials for the event which took place in July 2021. To start with we updated the overall look and feel of existing designs – developing fresh clean creative which we then rolled out across all marketing collateral including flyers, adverts, banners, certificates, e-signatures, roadside posters, route maps, gantry and timing banners for the day.

The event was a roaring success selling out in record time and raised vital funds for Chestnut Tree House and St Barnabas Hospice

“We has so much good feedback and everyone really enjoyed the day – Happily we are on track to raise £50,000 so I’m really pleased” Sophie Henderson Events Fundraising Executive


Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East Sussex, West Sussex, Brighton and Hove and South East Hampshire, caring for 300 children and young adults from 0-19 years of age, both at the hospice and in families’ own homes.
