Christopher’s, our purpose-built children’s hospice in Guildford, Surrey, first opened its doors in November 2001 and was officially opened in 2002 by our Royal Patron, HRH The Duchess of Edinburgh. With children’s bedrooms and family flats as well as a host of specialist facilities, Christopher’s is a home from home for families of children with life-limiting conditions.

Nut aware

Shooting Star Children’s Hospices is a nut aware organisation. We do not use nuts in our on-site kitchen and we ask that no nuts or nut containing products are brought into the hospice at any time.
