Fourfront Group’s development project for Shooting Star Chase is complete!

This project is the first in a series of events planned for 2019 which we hope will see our fundraising efforts for Shooting Star Chase exceed £500,000!

Fourfront Group have been supporting Shooting Star Children's Hospices since 2008 and through various fundraising events, have raised £400,000 for this fantastic cause. Shooting Star Children's Hospices do an incredible job and we are pleased to be able to help the children and families that they look after!

80 volunteers across Fourfront Group have worked alongside sub-contractors to transform the space at Shooting Star Chase within 2 weeks! This new space provides a modern lounge and dining area, which was carefully designed to ensure it was suitable for the nurses, carers, staff, children and their families.

Wanting to make it a fun and exciting environment for the children, the space features magical trees, hot air balloons and clouds. It also provides a seating area for families to enjoy meals together, as well as comfortable seating space.

Rick Astley made a very special appearance to perform for supported families who saw the newly transformed space for the first time.

Justin Lewis, our Head of Client Support, comments:

“We’ve had the most wonderful feedback from the staff and the families who are supported by Shooting Star. Soon after we had finished the project last weekend, a little boy staying there spent an hour mesmerized by the hot air balloons, the trees and the clouds. The look on his face that day has made this entire project worthwhile. This project wouldn’t have been possible without the support of colleagues from Fourfront Group, as well as our amazing sub-contractors who generously gave us materials, furniture and accessories for free, so for this, I thank them all.”

It was a pleasure for us here at Fourfront to help transform this space for such an incredible charity.

Shooting Star Children’s Hospices is a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families. Visit to find out more.
