We work closely with leading children’s hospice charity Shooting Star Chase. D&G Group CEO David Nash has been a supporter of Shooting Star Chase for many years now. Since David first started supporting us in 2007 for his benefit year he has raised nearly £200,000. He has done all sorts of things to support us such as running the London Marathon in a Pink Panther costume, running through mud and over obstacles in the Nuts Challenge and since setting up D&G Partners with his brother Glen, they put on this fantastic Test Match Ball every year.
More About Shooting Star Chase
“Whether lives are measured in days, weeks, months or years, we are here to make every moment count. We support families from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional and medical care.
Our bespoke support is free of charge to families and available 365 days a year. Our care service includes short breaks at our two 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 our current level of care. Around 10% of that income comes from government funding, so we rely on their supporter’s generosity to keep the service running. What’s more, we know are many more families desperate for our vital support, so it’s crucial we raise more funds to provide more care.”
