A skate way to start 2020

Christopher’s Saturday Club, Tweenies, got off to a skate start this year with a fun trip to Guildford Spectrum ice rink. 

Wonderful Christmas time at our hospices

As we reach the end of the traditional 12 days of Christmas – what a wonderful Christmas time it has been at our two hospices, Christopher’s in Guildford and Shooting Star House in Hampton.

Festive fun for our supported families at our hospices

With only a few more sleeps until the big day we have been feeling very Christmassy at our hospices, celebrating all things festive!

Oh what fun it is to ride on a Christmas motorbike!

There was no Wey to stop the smiles from the children and the Care team at Christopher’s last week when Wey Valley Motorcycle Club vroomed into the car park to drop off their annual Christmas toy donation!

It’s Panto-time at Christopher’s – Oh no it’s not! Oh yes it is!

Supported children (and our care team!) had a great Panto-time at Christopher’s this festive season, as Christmas for Kids paid a visit for a very special performance – oh yes it was! 

Supported families had a skate time at Hampton Court Palace

The festive feels were out in force last week as supported families came together at Hampton Court Palace ice rink for a spin on the ice.

“Shooting Star Children’s Hospices gave us one last Christmas together.”
