Join the nation taking on the 2.6 Challenge

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! 

Introducing our virtual hospice

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.
