Eden Financial has been supporting Starlight via its annual Charity Day since it established the event five years ago.
The team at Eden donate all their revenue from one day’s business, as well as personal donations, one day’s pay and money raised from individual challenges undertaken throughout the year. Celebrity guests including Sienna Miller, Emma Samms and Tom Chambers have attended the Eden Charity Day.
This fantastic team has so far raised over £600,000 for Starlight and granted a magical 350 wishes!
23rd-27th April 2012
Eden Financial hosted a wonderful Charity Week for Starlight, and through proudly baking cakes, walking the bridges of London, and generously bidding on some exciting auction lots, they raised over cc £20,000! A fantastic achievement!
This will help Starlight to grant wonderful wishes for more deserving sick children this year – particularly that of little six year old Christianna, who has been fighting acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Her and her family spent the day at Eden on Friday, where they met some of the office (and were even shown some magic tricks by some of the staff!) and she let out a gasp of surprise when she heard that her wish to go to Disneyland Paris was going to come true in May! Just when things couldn’t get any better, Snow White then appeared to whisk her and her family off to the Disney Store to buy some presents for her and her brother!
A huge thank you to everyone at Eden, as well as all your lovely clients, colleagues, friends and family, for enabling Starlight to create these magical moments – and for giving a little girl just the strength she might need to continue her brave battle.
If you would like to help them grant magical wishes for some very deserving children, please make a donation online here.
