Starlight Christmas Party at 11 Downing Street

For a fifth time Starlight was chosen to benefit from The chancellor of the Exchequer’s Christmas Party at 11 downing Street held on Wednesday 10th December.  The Chancellor, The Rt Hon George Osborne was in festive mood as he and Pixie Lott were there to greet the forty five seriously ill children that attended. There was plenty to keep the young guests entertained, TV’s wildlife expert, Nigel Marven popped in with his giant tortoise Esmeralda, a giant albino snake and several other special guests and the snake was busily draped around the shoulders of many of the children and several of the other including McBusted, Eastenders star Jake Wood and his Strictly partner, Janette Manrara.  Other special guests included Professor Green and Ella Eyre, Geri Halliwell and Christian Horner and Cbbc presenters Stefan Gates, Katie Thistleton and Rich and Dom.  Also on hand to sign and play games with the children was giant bunny Mim-Mim from the hit CBebbies series Kate & Mim-Mim.
