About Shooting Star Chase
Shooting Star Chase is a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families. Whether lives are measured in days, weeks, months or years, Shooting Star are here to make every moment count. They support families from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional and medical care.
Why / our objective / the outcome
Shooting Star Chase supports 650 life-limited babies, children and young people and their families living in London and Surrey. Their bespoke support is available 365 days a year at two purpose built children’s hospices and in their own homes at no cost to the families.
£7,500 could fund Sparkle Day Care for 150 days so babies and young people can have fun while their parents work or have a break. Sparkle Day Care at Hampton Hospice is a preschool provision which enables families to leave their baby or young child for a few hours in a safe environment with experienced and familiar care team members allowing the parent to do the shopping, attend appointments or simply have a few hours on their own.
