Starlight Children’s Foundation is a national children’s charity that is dedicated to brightening the lives of children and teenagers (4 to 18 years) suffering from a serious or terminal illness.
Starlight Children’s Foundation does this through extensive hospital entertainment and wish granting programmes.
