Commercial engagement and sponsorship

We appreciate that it may not always be feasible for companies to assist us through staff fundraising – but there are many other commercial engagement activities that play a vital role in supporting our work.


Sponsor one of our exciting high profile events to increase your brand awareness, gain access to a new audience, demonstrate your CSR credentials and help us raise vital funds. We can work with you to identify and build a bespoke package that meets your brand’s needs. Our sponsorship opportunities vary each year, but will include our bespoke challenge events, one-off fundraising or thank you events and the opportunity to add your company logo to our cycling jerseys and running vests.

Sunrise Walk 2020 sponsorship

This is an exciting opportunity to attach your name to Shooting Star Children’s Hospices’s flagship events series, our Sunrise Walk. You will benefit from brand awareness, unique PR opportunities and association with a feel-good event whilst helping raise vital funds for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices. It is also a great way to raise awareness to families, individuals and companies from London and Surrey.

Returning for its eighth year in 2020 the Sunrise Walk is set to be bigger and better than ever! Over 2,500 wonderful supporters have walked in memory of a loved one and in support of our families, raising an impressive £370,000!

Running and cycle vests sponsorship

This is a great opportunity to raise awareness of your brand to individuals, families and companies from across London and Surrey. Place your company logo on the back of running vests & cycling tops for use at events throughout the year.

Each year hundreds of supporters lace up their trainers or get on their bike to help raise awareness and vital funds for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, at events such as London Marathon, Ride 100, Berlin marathon, Royal Parks Half Marathon and more.
