While the pandemic has meant we are currently delivering all our clinical care from Christopher’s and Shooting Star House is closed for now whilst families continue to shield, we have been looking at how we can use Shooting Star House flexibly to provide support. This happened for the first time last week, when we invited bereaved families to a special day of remembrance.

We welcomed over 250 family members to Christopher’s for our Family Fun Day on Sunday 1 September.
