In your community
Right across the UK, schools and community groups go to amazing lengths to make life better for seriously ill children. At Starlight, we arrange everything from toys that distract children in hospital to once-in-a-lifetime Starlight Wishes – and every pre-school, school, college, scout group and social group that fundraises for us helps us reach even more children. There are so many ways you can give kids a real boost.
Recycle with Starlight
Get rid of unwanted belongings, do your bit for the environment and give children in need a boost with Starlight’s recycling schemes.
Recycling old clothes, linen, shoes, bags, hats and belts is win-win-win. It’s a great way to reduce landfill. It generates income for your school or group. And it raises vital funds to help our work with seriously ill children. Just choose whether you want to have a recycling bin for 12 months or hold a recycling week. Our textile recycling partners will then pick up what you collect, and Starlight and your group both benefit. Get started using the form below. Please note we are currently only able to provide textile recycling in areas within Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Warwickshire.
Lots of us have old mobiles sat gathering dust at home. But gather them up and donate them to Starlight and we’ll turn them into cash to fund our work with seriously ill children. Some phones can raise hundreds of pounds – enough to buy some Boost Boxes or Distraction Boxes to make life in hospital a little easier. What will your old phone turn into?
Simply send your old phone to the address below and we will receive 50% of what your phone is worth!
