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.

Our Chosen Charities for 2020
As we enter a new decade and following on from raising a massive £2485.50 last year for charity, we thought it would be a great idea to choose a local charity for each of our offices where we can give back to our communities.
We started by getting some suggestions throughout social media sites and followed it on with a poll sent to each of our teams to choose which Charities they wanted to support throughout 2020. We are pleased to announce the following charities –
Platinum Care Solutions Surrey – Shooting Star Children Hospice – https://www.shootingstar.org.uk/
Platinum Care Solutions West Sussex – Dementia Support – https://www.dementia-support.org.uk/
Platinum Care Solutions Hampshire – Dementia Friendly Fareham and Gosport – https://dementiafriendlyhampshire.org.uk/fareham-and-gosport/
Safe Harbour Homecare Petersfield – Dementia Friendly Hampshire https://dementiafriendlyhampshire.org.uk
We will be announcing our challenges in the coming weeks and talking more about the causes we have chosen, so keep an eye out on our social media pages for details of how you can get involved.
If you already have a challenge in mind and would like to do this alongside our efforts, then please contact your local office with the information.
