Shooting Star Space Race
Who you'll be helping
“I’m in no way exaggerating when I say they literally saved my life. My GP was so close to sectioning me, but she spoke to the team at Shooting Star Children’s Hospices who said they could help us. We lived at the hospice for three months whilst I recovered and they campaigned for a care package for us so we could go home. They built my confidence to care for Zoë as well as be her mum.”
A galaxy of ideas…
Star Shaped Strolls
Map out a star shaped run or walk in your local area, or a favourite place, and share them with our Strava group.
Big Bang Bake Sale
Bake up some star-shaped buscuits for a bake sale or coffee morning. You could even include your favourite space themed chocolate bars into your creation if you’re feeling extra indulgent.
Quiz in Space!
See if your friends know their comets from their quasars, or the difference between Goose and Jonesy, by holding a space and sci-fi themed quiz.
Tell your story
Share with people why you are taking part in the Shooting Star Space Race, what challenge you are taking on and why you have chosen to support Shooting Star Children’s Hospices.
Upgrade your JustGiving page
Improve your page using our handy guide then share it far and wide. If you use your phone it’s really easy to share it to Facebook and beyond.
Boost your sponsorship
Why not launch your fundraising by sponsoring yourself? Research shows that the earlier you receive your first donation, the more you will go on to raise.
Shout about it
Post photos and videos to show you’re taking on a challenge. Don’t forget to include your JustGiving link! If you are hosting an event, why not download our editable Space Race poster to help?
Celebrate your milestones
These could be related to your fundraising or mileage completed. You’ll automatically earn badges on your page for fundraising, so it’s even easier to show off your success to others and encourage further support.
It can be hard to ask for sponsorship, but small amounts can make a big difference. Give something up for a week like your daily take-away coffee (£4) and encourage others to do the same and donate the money that would’ve been spent.
Whatever you do to raise money, you’re making a huge difference to children living with life-limiting conditions, and their families. Thank you and good luck!
