Suzanne Price, Treasurer and Team Leader for Music, Film and Photography at chART said, "We are totally thrilled and honoured to announce Exit State have agreed to become patrons of chART - Children's Hospice Arts. We are very excited to be working closely with the band on some incredible ventures over the next few months, one of those being an acoustic set for the children and staff of Claire House Children's Hospice in the Wirral. We would like to sincerely thank Roy Bright, Phil Ireland, Peat Hicks, Matt Harris and their manager Mark Appleton for their kindness and fantastic support".

Roy Bright adds.. "We were already proud to be recognised as official supporters of chART after being introduced by Wayne Findlay of Michael Schenker's Temple of Rock and to now be appointed as official patrons is a true honour. We're so grateful to Suzanne and her colleagues that we can be involved like this. We've been working on a new acoustic set and simply cannot wait to take that into a session at Claire House which will give us a fantastic opportunity to learn more about chART and the great things the organisation does for the children and young people".
