Leading public construction and solutions company Osborne adopted Shooting Star Children’s Hospices as their charity partner in 2018.
In June 2019, Osborne held a charity golf day, in less than ideal conditions. Torrential rain, combined with a loss of water to large parts of West London, might have been enough to dampen spirits, but they defied the odds to raise a truly amazing £21,000 on the day, to add to their already impressive fundraising total.
Chris Hickman, a Senior Project Manager at Osborne said
“There are moments in life where you can proudly say, ‘that was a great moment’. For me, it was announcing that in the last 18 months, we had raised £39,000 for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices. I am extremely proud of this fact and I can’t thank our people and supply chain enough for their continued support and generosity”.
The money was raised in order to build a new music cabin at Christopher’s Hospice. The old music room had space for one child at a time to receive music therapy, limiting who could have time in there. The new building provides much greater flexibility as well as space and will be able to accommodate group and 121 sessions.
Supporting our events
Osborne also generously supported our first ever Stadium Challenge event, by organising a gigantic banner that was displayed by Twickenham station promoting our event to thousands of commuters and local residents. They also donated 100 brand new Hi-Vis jackets to be used by the charity at our various events throughout the year.
