The one thing we can be sure of in these uncertain times is just how unbelievably amazing our supporters are. The help and love expressed by the community around us during such a challenging time, has been nothing short of incredible.
This week is Children’s Hospice Week – a national week to celebrate and raise awareness of the vital work and lifeline children’s hospices, like Shooting Star Children's Hospices, provide to families across the UK.
Up until a few weeks ago, seven-month-old Patrick had spent his entire life on Mountain Ward at Evelina Hospital. Recently he was referred to us for three weeks of step-down care to help his parents make the transition from hospital to caring for him at home.
The first week of June marks Volunteer’s Week, where those who give their time, dedication and expertise to organisations are celebrated for the amazing work they do. During the pandemic, our volunteers have been invaluable – from supporting us in the hospice, volunteering remotely, or if unable to fulfil their usual volunteer role, by continuing to help raise funds and awareness.
