Wish Upon A Star

The Cancer Centre will be shining brightly this Christmas with Friends of the Cancer Centre’s special Wish Upon a Star appeal.

Our Wish Upon a Star appeal is our way of bringing Christmas right into the heart of the Cancer Centre, giving people the opportunity to mark this time of year in a unique and special way. Our Wish Upon a Star appeal will see the Christmas tree inside the hospital shine bright with hundreds of gold and silver stars, each dedicated to someone special this Christmas. For a donation of £5, people are invited to write their own personal wish, message or name of a loved one on a beautiful star decoration and hang it on the hospital’s tree.

You can Wish Upon a Star in person or online:

1. Call to Friends of the Cancer Centre's office (ground floor of the Cancer Centre) to buy your own glistening gold or silver star and write your personal message.  You can then hang it on the hospital's Christmas tree and we will give you a beautiful star to take home. 

2. If you can't make it to the Cancer Centre, 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 24 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. 

All proceeds will support our life-saving and life-changing work which benefits thousands of patients across Northern Ireland.   

Don't forget to share your star with family and friends.  Tweet us your pictures @FriendsCCNI #WishUponAStar or tag us on Facebook facebook.com/friendsofthecancercentre
