Here at Adsyst Automation, we are supporting our local Children’s Hospice, Shooting Star Chase, Christopher’s, as our Charity of the Year. Shooting Star Chase support babies, children, young people who have life-limiting/life-threatening conditions and their families. Shooting Star Chase provides bespoke support which is free of charge to families and available 365 days a year. Their care service includes short breaks at either of their hospices (Shooting Star House in Hampton and Christopher’s in Guildford), Hospice at Home, day care, symptom management, end-of-life care, bereavement care and a comprehensive range of therapies and support groups for the whole family.
It costs £10 million a year just to maintain the current level of care. Around 10% of that income comes from government funding, so they rely heavily on their supporters’ generosity to keep the service running. What’s more, they know there are many more families desperate for their vital support, so it’s crucial we raise more funds to provide more care.
We will be taking part in various fundraising activities throughout the year, such as cake sales, team building evenings, sweep stakes, challenges etc.
