Square One reaches for the stars!
The day is the first in a series of fun and sporting initiatives being organised by Square One this year to raise funds for Starlight Children’s Foundation, the UK’s leading wish granting charity for children and young people with serious and terminal illness. Dressing down in the charity colours of blue and yellow, the day included a raffle competition across sales and operations teams, with fun forfeits if competition targets set were not achieved.
Starlight Children’s Foundation, head of operations, Julie Carne says, “We’re absolutely thrilled to have the support of Square One Resources and look forward to a long and exciting relationship. It looks like they had lots of fun & lsquo;dressing down’ for Starlight and the money raised will be used to help brighten the lives of seriously and terminally ill children and their families across the UK by helping to grant & lsquo;wishes-of-a-lifetime’ for the children and by bringing some much needed fun and laughter onto hospital wards.”
Starlight grants once-in-a-lifetime wishes for seriously and terminally ill children, restoring the magic and fun of childhood and giving the whole family happy memories to share, whatever the future holds.
Starlight also creates entertainment in every hospital and hospice throughout the UK. Sick children go to Starlight parties, laugh their way through pantomimes, go out on Starlight Escapes, play games and watch films on the Starlight Fun Centre, and enjoy the toys and puzzles of the Starlight Distraction Box. Happy children respond better to treatment and Starlight helps children to forget about their illness and simply have a bit of fun.
