Read your Shining Star dedication here

Our heartfelt thanks go out to all those who have supported this year's Shining Stars Christmas appeal. We invited people to dedicate a Shining Star to celebrate the life of someone who can't be with us at this time, or write a personal message of thanks to a friend or relative recognising that special someone at this time of reflection.

We have been inundated with wonderful messages on the stars which are currently being displayed at the front reception at Southampton General Hospital. Listed below are the dedications we have received so far. If you would like to contribute, please visit 
Still looking for inspiration? Please view our short Shining Stars film here.
Thank you for your support. We raised over £3,700.
