The Board of Trustees of Shooting Star Children’s Hospices is delighted to welcome Katherine Theobald, Mark Garraway and Andrew Edge as Trustees.
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.
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.
Support us, albeit virtually, by taking part in our Virtual Sunrise Walk over the months of May and June to support babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families across Surrey and London.
We asked you to join us in the 2.6 Challenge and #TeamShootingStar hopped, skipped, jumped, walked and ran (to name a few things!) to it – raising thousands of pounds to help support Shooting Star Children’s Hospices.
Sunday 26th April should’ve been the day we took to the streets with thousands of others to cheer on our incredible #TeamShootingStar runners at the London Marathon. So to mark what would have been the London Marathon, one of our single biggest fundraisers, we’re asking you to join the nation and take on the 2.6 Challenge!
We’re going virtual to ensure we can still support children with life-limiting conditions, and their families, in every way we can during this uncertain time.
We are a lifeline to so many families, but right now we’re facing the unthinkable – a world where our service no longer exists. Please donate, if you can, to our coronavirus emergency appeal.
