One of our 5p fundraisers and her collection bottle

One million 5p challenge

Join our one million 5p challenge – it’s simple and easy to do and will help us raise an incredible amount of money. With the help of your spare five pence pieces we are hoping to raise £50,000 – that’s 1 million 5p’s – which will goes towards caring for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

Here's how it works

Recycle it:

The next time you finish a bottle of water don’t just throw it away, think green, think Shooting Star Children’s Hospices!

Tear it:

Tear off the existing label and contact us for a special challenge label. Once you’ve got it, peel off the strips and stick it to your bottle.

Save it:

Put those fiddly little 5p pieces to good use and collect them in your new Shooting Star Children’s Hospices coin collector.

Peel it:

Once your bottle is full, peel off the label and follow the instructions inside.
