Starlight given a grand do­na­tion

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUSINESS -

YORK­SHIRE Build­ing So­ci­ety in Chal­font St Peter has do­nated £1,000 to Starlight Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion.

The money was do­nated thanks to the build­ing so­ci­ety’s Small Change Big Dif­fer­ence Scheme, and the char­ity was nom­i­nated by col­leagues at the vil­lage branch.

Starlight bright­ens the lives of se­ri­ously and ter­mi­nally ill chil­dren by grant­ing wishes of a life­time and also by pro­vid­ing fun, en­ter­tain­ment, laugh­ter and dis­trac­tion for pa­tients in ev­ery chil­dren’s hospital ward and hos­pice through­out the United King­dom.

All Starlight’s ac­tiv­i­ties are aimed at dis­tract­ing chil­dren from the pain, fear and iso­la­tion they can of­ten feel as a re­sult of their ill­nesses and at strength­en­ing fam­ily bonds at what is of­ten a time of great stress.

Alex Ab­bott, fundraiser at Starlight Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion, said: “On be­half of ev­ery­one at Starlight Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion, I would like to thank the York­shire Build­ing So­ci­ety Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion for this gen­er­ous do­na­tion, which will be used to en­hance the qual­ity of life of our se­ri­ously and ter­mi­nally ill Starlight Chil­dren.”
