Our hospices are fun and vibrant, just like a nursery environment, where the children we support can enjoy playing and learning no matter what their mobility, sensory or developmental capacity is.

The support we provide can make an incredible difference to families coping with unimaginable circumstances, but we couldn’t continue without our amazing supporters! Help us provide vital support for the children and families we care for by taking part in some fundraising with the children and families you care for.

How can nurseries help us?

Why not have a sensory exploration day, with a range of sensory play activities where children can learn and develop their own senses whilst supporting Shooting Star Children’s Hospices. Finish the day by making sensory toys to take home and ask parents to make a small donation. Try filling different containers, such as bottles, sealable bags or even empty wet wipe containers, with different materials and substances to generate a range of sights, sounds, smells and textures.

You could have a colouring competition with our lovely colouring sheets or take on our 5p challenge with your pre-schoolers! Want to be even bolder? Brave staff could tackle one of our amazing challenge events or hold a sponsored nursery challenge for children.

What ever you decide to do, let us help you by requesting a fundraising pack with ideas and resources for supporting Shooting Star Children’s Hospices with your little ones. Simply email our Community Fundraising Team.
