Read your Shining Star dedications...

As the winter season approaches and our thoughts turn to celebrations, remembrance and thanks, Southampton Hospital Charity would like to give you the opportunity to make a special dedication to a loved one.

Christmas tree

We invite you to dedicate a Shining Star and 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.

For a suggested donation of £10 your message (220 word maximum) will be recorded on a star which will be displayed on a Christmas tree in the main hall at Southampton General Hospital and on our website.

Alternatively you can make your donation, then download the templates below for personal or corporates, and post to us.

Southampton Hospital Charity can use your donation in the area of greatest need, or if you would prefer your donation to benefit a particular area of the hospital please let us know.
