All About Me
What everyone should know about me
Starlight grants wishes of a lifetime to seriously and terminally ill children, and entertains children with fun and laughter in every hospital & hospice throughout the UK this help's take their minds off the pain, fear and isolation of their illness
When Starlight began in 1987, the charity helped just 4 children; this year, starlight will help over 500,000 children all over the UK. Where possible, mums, dads, brothers and sisters are involved to strengthen family bonds at what is often a time of great stress and give everyone happy memories to share, no matter what the future may hold. Starlight receives neither Government nor Lottery support.
If Starlight had just one wish itself, it would be that cures could be found for all the terrible illnesses that can afflict children. Until then, Starlight will continue to provide important medicines of another sort: excitement, fun and laughter.
