Packed event raises money for Shooting Star Children’s Hospice

Chiswick Business Park’s annual fireworks ‘Extravaganza’ event has raised over £10,000 for charity. The annual fireworks display has become a famous event in west London and a must-see for many.

This year’s display was fully booked several weeks prior to the event and attracted 6,500 people, raising over £10,000 in support of Shooting Star Children’s Hospice charity, which cares for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

Apart from fireworks, spectators enjoyed live music and performers entertaining the crowds doing tricks with fire and stilt walking. There was face painting for children and a range of food and drink on sale. This year’s show featured a firewalk, where trained professionals showed those doing it for the first time how to walk on hot coals, to fundraise for the charity.

Workers from FTI Property Consulting, who are based at Chiswick Park, said on social media that the show was ‘fantastic’:

“Great to be at the annual Chiswick Park Extravaganza fireworks display last night! A fantastic show, entertainment and hospitality. Thank you”

The Chiswick Calendar’s editor Bridget Osborne said, also on Twitter, the fireworks were ‘brilliant as usual’.
