Shining Stars Christmas Appeal 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.

We invite you 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, relative, hospital individual or team.

Remember, a donation doesn't have to be large to make a difference - just give what you can. 

You can write a cheque payable to Southampton Hospital Charity, text STAR03 £10 to 70070, or make your dedication online at 


Our thanks to those people who have already donated. Messages are updated weekly, so keep an eye out for your dedication.
