Help us save Christmas for Shooting Star Children's Hospice
Join us on our 10th Santa Charity Cycle
Don't Miss Our Special 10th Anniversary Santa Charity Cycle
For the last 10 years, along with 100s of other cycling Santas, we've cycled our 20 km route from Richmond, SW London to deliver gifts to the incredible children at Shooting Star Children's Hospice in Hampton who are suffering with life limiting illnesses. It’s grown from humble beginnings 10 years ago to an annual must do activity on the Richmond Festive season calendar.
Since we started this journey with Shooting Star we have delivered over 5000 Christmas presents to the kids and raised thousands of pounds for this fantastic charity.
This year we have something super special planned to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We hope you can join us?

HELP SUPPORT CHILDREN WITH LIFE LIMITING ILLNESSES
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.
They are a lifeline to so many families across Surrey and London supporting them from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional and medical care.
It costs £10.1 million a year to maintain their current level of care and just 20% of that income comes from central government funding, so they rely on supporters like you for your generosity to keep the service running.
No, all we ask is you purchase a gift for the children, and/or make a donation. You will also receive complimentary refreshments at the start courtesy of Whole Foods and at the finish courtesy of The Turks Head.
This event is primarily a fundraising event. Fundraising, in addition to bringing a gift is not compulsory but we do encourage you to help support the lives of children who have had their lives severely impacted as a result of life limiting illnesses. No donation is too small.
Yes, children 12 and over are allowed, as long as they are able to safely ride on the road AND are accompanied by a responsible adult. PLEASE CONTACT US SEPERATELY FOR A CHILDRENS WAIVER FORM : [email protected]
