Celebrate a Life 2022

A star for someone special

Celebrate a Life is a special occasion for our patients, their loved ones, our supporters, and staff. It’s a time to reflect and celebrate people in our lives, and to create new memories with people we love. 

By naming a star for someone special and making a donation, you are making a vital difference to the lives of cancer patients and their families.

A star for a star

There are many different reasons why people choose to dedicate a star, it could be in memory of someone special, to say thank you to a member of staff who supported them at the hospital, or just to celebrate the people in their lives.

Celebrate a Life is a lovely way of showing our thanks to the hospital. I want my son to continue his mum’s legacy and this is a great way to feel that he’s still connected to her. It’s so important for us to go to this event so we can pay our respects and feel closer to Bonnie.
