Starlight given a grand donation
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.”
