Who you will help

Help us by fundraising to make every moment count for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families – read our family stories to find out more about what we do.

With your dedication and commitment we are hoping to raise £90,000 from this event. In order to do this we hope that participants will commit to raising £150 through sponsorship. If you’re taking part as a group, we recommend setting up a group fundraising page for all of you with a target that you feel is realistic, but also ambitious – you may surprised how much you raise!

£150 could enable a child and their family to benefit from a music therapy session. Allowing them to express and communicate in new and profound ways.

We aim to support all our fundraisers as much as we can, and we can provide lots of sponsorship ideas and support as you move towards the big day.

For more information please contact events@shootingstar.org.uk or call 01932 823100.
