Starlight Day

Get ready for the first annual Starlight Day.

#SmileForStarlight

Our first national Starlight Day takes place on Friday 1st May with the objective of raising funds and building awareness of Starlight Children’s Foundation, the UK’s largest wish granting charity.

There will be Starlight Day volunteers in train stations and shopping centres around the country, handing out sweets, #SmileForStarlight stickers, Starlight wristbands, pin badges and encouraging donations. Train stations include Paddington, Charing Cross, Euston, Manchester Piccadilly, Birmingham New Street, Exeter Central, Nottingham, Bristol and Southampton Central.

Offices, workspaces and supporters across the country will be getting involved with dress down days, cake sales, coffee mornings, cheese and wine evenings, cocktail parties and many other events to raise money for our Starlight children.

Help us to get our digital campaign #SmileForStarlight to go viral! Take a selfie of your biggest smile and post it online using #SmileForStarlight and @Starlight_UK. Tag a friend and ask them to keep the smile chain going. Post on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and don’t forget to text to donate – ‘WISH35 £3’ to 70070.
