Platinum Care Solutions Surrey – Shooting Star Children Hospice
This year our surrey team have chosen to support a local Charity called Shooting Star Children Hospice based in Guildford.
Our registered manager Brenda Smith recently went to visit the hospice to discuss their services and how we plan to support them in our charity efforts for 2020.
“I spent a lovely afternoon at Shooting stars hospice in Guildford. I was made very welcome and enjoyed a slide show which gave us all the information about the fantastic work that all the staff provide within this very friendly beautiful home. We at Platinum Care Solutions Camberley branch are very excited to have chosen this wonderful charity. We have got lots of idea’s to raise vital funds over the next 12 months. We have set ourselves the target of reaching £1000 over the year and hope to exceed this if possible with our teams support.”
How Shooting Star Began:
Our story began as two separate children’s hospice charities. CHASE which was founded in 1994 and The Shooting Star Trust founded in 1995. In April 2011, the two charities merged to become Shooting Star Chase, with the two hospices Christopher’s in Guildford and Shooting Star House in Hampton able to provide more care for more children and families in London and Surrey. In February 2019 we updated our name to Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, to provide greater clarity about what we do.
Today we are a leading children’s hospice charity supporting over 700 children, and their families, throughout Surrey and across 15 boroughs of London, 365 days a year.
