Gifts in Celebration

Giving a gift in celebration is the perfect way to make your celebration extra special. Whatever the occasion – birthday, wedding, anniversary or even baptism, graduation or retirement – celebrate it with friends and, instead of receiving gifts, ask for donations to Shooting Star Children’s Hospices.

Leaving a lasting legacy

Leave a gift in your will

A gift in your will ensures future generations of children and young people will have access to specialist facilities and equipment and expertly trained staff. Find out more, including how we can help you write a will for free.

Gifts in memory

A donation in memory can be a special way to remember and celebrate the life of someone important to you. We know that these gifts have extra meaning, as a way to remember a loved one, whilst knowing you are helping to support families through the toughest of times.

Regular gifts

A regular gift means we can help families by planning ahead, offering much needed security.

Buy a gift from our Amazon Wish List

We want to help families make every moment count and as every child who visits our hospices has their own unique needs, we need to ensure we’re equipped with toys and games for all ages and abilities, and equipment that’s needed day-to-day to deliver outstanding care.

Many people who support us like to make a donation of an item that will really make a difference. This could be a Christmas present or Easter gift for a supported child. It could also be items that will help a family going through an incredibly difficult time, gifts to help our care staff in their jobs at our hospices, or items for our community nurses to use when they’re visiting families.
