Starlight Parties

The Starlight Party service has now closed as we replace it with two exciting new services.  If you applied for a party and had it approved before 16 September 2016, you can still submit your reimbursements to Starlight.  Please send your receipts and reimbursement form in as soon as possible – you can download a reimbursement form here: MS WORDPDF

Starlight is pleased to be launching Starlight Boost Boxes and Captain Starlight.  A Starlight Boost Box includes toys, games, and arts and crafts for you to give out to patients in your care.  The Starlight Boost Box is distributed four times throughout the year so that you’ve always got something on hand to give out to children who need comforting, distracting or cheering up.To apply for your Starlight Boost Box please call 0207 262 2881 ext. #404 to speak to a member of the Hospital Services team or email

Starlight is piloting a new entertainment service from September 2016 onwards.  Captain Starlight is a superhero from Planet Starlight who will engage with each child’s imagination. Captain Starlight aims to reduce the feelings of fear, anxiety and boredom that children often experience in hospital; the Captains do so with activities such as arts and crafts, music, dance, and everything in between.  Captain Starlight can entertain the children in a playroom, communal area or the Captains can visit each child at their bedside – whatever works best for you.  For all enquiries please contact Vicky James on 0207 262 2881 ext. #210 or email
