2010 Shooting Star Chase (Christmas)
Last year we took part in many charity events and none warmed our hearts more than our visit in festive costumes to the Shooting Star CHASE Christopher’s Hospice donning elf hats and jingling boots Paul Strank Roofing Staff alongside a merry Paul in his Santa get-up visited the life limited children and were received with open arms and grinning faces by both parents and children alike.
The day saw Paul & Staff in costume alongside Film Star Tamer Hassan and EastEnders favourite John Partridge delivering the gifts gathered by our toy appeal last year to the children, there was music and DJ’ing lessons given by our friends from Danceaid overseen by the projects creators Wayne Eldridge and Mete Alpsakarya who were also elves for the day.
The Shooting Star CHASE Christopher’s Hospice supports families with children who aren’t expected to reach their 19th birthday; they provide these opportunities for the children to enjoy a fun time and help to create a lasting, happy memory, and we believe very strongly that these appeals they make for toys, and events like the one we ran for them are imperative to the proper care and attention these children require. It is a valuable aspect of CHASE support and gives both the children and the family something to look forward to.
Some of you may remember that last year we were most active in pursuing a Toy Drive for Shooting Star CHASE, desperately seeking any and all donations for what we promised would be a day to remember for the children and we couldn’t have been more right! Thanks to the astounding response to the toy drive we were able to deliver each and every child something that they wrote to Santa for in their lists earlier in the year and as you can see from the gallery on the left hand side it was greatly appreciated by both parents and children alike!
From everyone at Paul Strank Roofing we offer our most sincere thanks to all the people who helped make this event possible, we cannot convey over any kind of media what this day meant to these children or to us for being there.
