Fuller’s have been in partnership with Shooting Star Children’s Hospices since 2012 and in that time, they have tirelessly supported the local children’s hospice charity in every way possible.

This phenomenal support has resulted in Fuller’s reaching a massive £927,000, which has gone toward ensuring we can provide their vital care services for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families across Surrey and London.

The amazing achievement has been reached through a plethora of challenges and activities taken on by staff over the years including skydives, several long-distance cycle challenges, family fun days and quiz nights to name a few.

Part of the huge total raised is thanks to generous customers at Fuller’s pubs who have helped to raise £291,929 through Pennies, the digital charity box. Pennies, itself a charity, gives customers the option to donate a few pence to charity when they pay by card, giving them an anonymous and affordable way to donate.

Although many of their pubs were forced to temporarily close last year due to the pandemic, this didn’t stop Fuller’s staff thinking of different ways to fundraise, with one staff member raising £2,200 by making and selling 550 masks at the beginning of last year.

To commemorate this near ten-year partnership Georgina Wald and Martina Staps from Fuller’s visited the charity’s Hampton hospice, Shooting Star House, on Thursday 21 October, to unveil a specially engraved new wheelchair friendly pub picnic bench.

Georgina Wald from Fuller’s said, “We are very proud of the contribution we’ve made over the years to support the amazing work that Shooting Star Children’s Hospices does, and we wish this great charity every success in the future.”

Sally Wells, Director of Fundraising at Shooting Star Children’s Hospices said, “We cannot thank everyone at Fuller’s enough for all they have achieved and for the time and dedication they have put into supporting Shooting Star Children’s Hospices since becoming a partner back in 2012. Raising £927,000 is simply phenomenal and every penny has and will go to providing the vital care for the families we support.”
