Shooting Star Chase (Registered Charity No. 1042495) are a children's hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families, who rely very heavily on their supporters to keep the service running.
This year we'd like to provide Christmas presents for as many of the children and siblings as possible again, and ideally all of them! These will be given to the children by Father Christmas at their Christmas party on 22nd December which some Quins’ Players will also be attending.
What and Where to donate
Below is a wish list of gifts broken down by age group. The teenagers tend to get a bit left out sometimes so vouchers for music/meals/experiences would be particularly welcomed this year.
As the gifts will need to be sorted by age and ability before assigning them to a specific child, PLEASE DO NOT WRAP YOUR DONATIONS - if they can be provided in a gift bag that would be perfect.
Gift donations can be made at the Quinssa stand before each of the following matches:
Quins v Timisoara - 17th December
They can also be handed into the IG Reception between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday.
Our Members have always been extremely generous in supporting this Appeal and I can assure you that these presents really do bring happiness to thsese very special kidsm and their amazing families. One extra present on your list really would make a huge difference.
PLEASE DO NOT WRAP PRESENTS AS AN AGE APPROPRIATE GIFT HAS TO BE SELECTED FOR EACH CHILD. Thank You.
The presents should be new, if you have good quality second hand presents that you would like to donate you should contact Shooting Star CHASE directly, details can be found on their website shootingstarchase.org.uk.
