Collection cans

They may be small, but collection cans make a huge difference to Shooting Star Children’s Hospices. As well as being a very effective way of raising money, they help spread awareness of our services throughout the communities we serve.

Every year we receive £35,000 from collection cans alone, that’s enough to pay for a short break at one of our hospices for 30 families – all in loose change!

We have a team of dedicated volunteers who help us distribute and collect our cans and who help us count the contents every week.

If you’d like to request a collection can to start collecting for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices or you have a full one that needs replacing – please let us know! You can either contact our Community Engagement Team or fill out the form below.
