Barlow Robbins & Shooting Star Chase

23 May 2018

Barlow Robbins are proud to be a Corporate Partner of Shooting Star Chase, a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families.

We have worked closely with Shooting Star Chase to develop a fund-raising plan which has allowed everyone at the firm an opportunity to play their part in raising money for the charity. Fund-raising initiatives have varied from sporting challenges outside the office to collection boxes and competitions within the office and below are some highlights from the past year of which we are particularly proud:

Berlin Marathon – In September last year, Gordon Reid, Charities Partner at Barlow Robbins, ran the Berlin Marathon in 4 hours and 15 minutes raising an amazing £3,356.20.

Christmas Jumper Day – Each year the firm holds a ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ in each of the offices where staff make a £1 donation in order to wear their festive clothing to the office with the prize for the best jumper being awarded in each office – a highly sought after title!

Name the Bear – At the Surrey Game and Country Fair held at Loseley Park, we held a ‘Name the Bear’ competition in aid of Shooting Star Chase. The competition was extremely popular and entrants spanned all the ages. After a variety of names being offered, and a great deal of excitement from the children in attendance, the winner was crowned and the bear duly named Vincent.

Since June 2016 when our Corporate Partnership began we have raised over £30,000 for Shooting Star Chase and we continue to strive to find new and exciting initiatives that the firm can get involved in in order to continue to support the charity.
