Time to play - Winter 2020

Starlight is raising money for Starlight Children's Foundation

My story

It’s time to play and forget about treatment!

Every child needs and deserves to play. It is absolutely crucial for their social and emotional development. But the COVID-19 crisis has made this so much more challenging for seriously ill children in hospital, and at home.

We believe play must be protected. That’s why, as we head towards the end of a uniquely challenging year, it’s Starlight’s ambition to raise £300,000 by Dec 10th, to give 30,000 seriously ill children the chance to play this Christmas. Will you help us make sure no child misses out this year?

Help us this winter and let a child play!

Isolation Packs need to be delivered to hospitals this Christmas
Wishes need to be adapted so they can still be granted
Boost Boxes need to arrive on children’s wards across the UK
Virtual Escapes need to be organised to help families make play happen at home
Play Bundles need to be distributed to more children who need to play
Distraction Boxes need to be sent out to help NHS staff working at Christmas
Christmas parties need to be changed so the children can still see Santa

It’s time to make things happen. Will you help make sure no seriously ill child misses out on the fun this Christmas?
