Local housebuilder donates Christmas gifts to Guildford-based children’s hospice

In true Christmas spirit and to bring a smile to the faces of babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions being cared for at the Guildford-based Shooting Star Chase Hospice, Linden Homes has donated a selection of gifts as part of its Christmas present collection appeal in time for Christmas Day.

The housebuilder, based at Guildford Business Park, dropped off the goodies to the hospice earlier this week, after it called out to staff at its Guildford office to come forward with a range of offerings.

Sarah Hunt who organised the present collection at Linden Homes, said: “Christmas should be an exciting time for children and families, so we asked our colleagues to dig deep and help make an otherwise difficult time that little bit more memorable and exciting! Their generosity and kindness will certainly go a long way.”

As well as caring for babies, children and young people up to the age of 21 with life-limiting conditions, Shooting Star Chase also supports families from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional and medical care.

Jenny Pearman, Corporate Relationship Manager at Shooting Star Chase, said of the donation from Linden Homes: “Whether lives are measured in days, weeks, months or years, Shooting Star Chase is here to make every moment count. The gifts donated from Linden Homes will help make our Christmas celebrations extra special at our two hospices and means our hospice at home team can deliver gifts to children and siblings throughout December.”
