Leading public construction and solutions company Osborne are one of Shooting Star Children’s Hospices charity partners and have raised to date, a fantastic £39,000.
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 is being raised in order to build a new music cabin at Christopher’s Hospice. Currently the music room only has space for one child at a time to receive music therapy, limiting who can have time in there. Osborne have taken the project to their hearts – as well as raising the necessary capital, they are providing their construction expertise and experience to ensure the new building will be a very special addition to our hospice – we cannot wait to see it develop.
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. And they have also given us 100 brand new Hi-Vis jackets to be used by the charity at our various events throughout the year.
