Wish Upon A Star

This year, we are inviting you to light up our virtual tree and fill it with stars shining brightly for Friends of the Cancer Centre’s special Wish Upon a Star appeal.

Wish Upon a Star is our way of marking this time of year in a unique and special way. Things are a little bit different this year, as due to Covid-19 we are unable to decorate our Christmas trees in the Cancer Centre, but we are really looking forward to seeing the virtual Christmas tree on the charity's website shine bright with hundreds of stars, each dedicated to someone special.

For a donation of £10, people are invited to write their own personal wish, message or name of a loved one and their star will shine brightly on our virtual Christmas tree. Thanks to our friends at John Mulholland Motors giving a generous Christmas gift, your donation will be matched and go even further this year to help support even more local cancer patients and their families.

You can Wish Upon a Star online or by Text:

On our website - You can Wish Upon a Star from anywhere in the world using our beautiful virtual Christmas tree.  Just click here, follow the simple steps to buy your star and write your message.  Please allow 48 hours for your star to appear on the tree but once complete, you can come back to find your star and read your message at any time. For supporters in the UK, if you provide your contact address at the time of your donation, we will also post out a beautiful star for you to hang on your tree at home. (NB. Unfortunately we are unable to post stars to addresses outside the UK).
