Shooting Star CHASE is your local children’s hospice charity caring for over 600 families living in western London, Surrey and West Sussex.

Movember Fundraising for Shooting Star CHASE

Doug is growing a moustache for Movember. Yes, it’s official. Best Desk’s Doug Scott is raising money for Shooting Star Children’s Hospice by growing a super mo.

Starting on 1st November there are five simple rules:

1. Start with a clean shaven face,

2. For the whole month of November you must grow and groom your moustache,

3. It’s a moustache not a beard, so no joining at the sideburns,

4. No growth on the chin joined to your mo,

5. You must conduct yourself as a true gentleman.

During the month of November 2013, £2 from each Best Desk sale will be donated to Shooting Star. At the same time we will be putting regular posts on our Facebook page and Twitter feeds updating you with the progress of the hairy upper lip!

Shooting Star CHASE is a children’s hospice service local to Best Desk. It is a charity caring for local families with a child or teenager with a life-limiting condition. Currently Shooting Star helps over 600 families living in western London, Surrey and West Sussex.

The Shooting Star Trust was founded in 1995 by Kathryn Turner MBE. After seven years of capital fundraising, the construction of Shooting Star House commenced in January 2003 and took two years to complete. Shooting Star House welcomed its first family in August 2005 and the hospice was officially opened by HRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall in February 2006.

CHASE started in 1990, prompted by an article in a national newspaper describing the plight of a family with a child with a life-limiting condition, Julia Lever MBE set up a fundraising group to support Acorns, a children’s hospice service in Birmingham. Julia then turned her attention to starting a children’s hospice service in her own area. On 10 May 1999, enough money had been raised for the Community Team to start work. Shooting Star CHASE Royal Patron HRH The Countess of Wessex officially opened Christopher’s in 2002.

On 1 April 2011 these two charities merged to become Shooting Star CHASE.
