Wish upon a Star

Write a Christmas Wish upon a Star to boost Cancer and Wellbeing Appeal

THE Cancer and Wellbeing Appeal fundraising team is urging North Devon people and businesses to join its Christmas Wish upon a Star campaign.

The campaign, launched today, offers an easy alternative to sending Christmas cards.

Just download a poster here put it on your wall and ask friends and colleagues to write a Christmas message on one of the stars.

For every wish you write, put a donation in a pot and send it to the fundraising team.

“We hope the idea will be of particular interest to local businesses and staff, but it’s suitable for individuals as well, and some of our hospital staff have already started writing their Christmas wishes” said Julie Whitton, Over and Above’s fundraising officer.

“Not only will your money go to a fantastic cause, it could also save you many hours of writing cards and help protect the environment.

“Posters can be downloaded and printed in A3 or A4 as many times as you like, or contact us and we’ll send you a copy.”

Julie said “The Christmas Wish upon a Star campaign will boost the Appeal and help us make the new North Devon Cancer and Wellbeing Centre a reality.”

All Christmas Wish upon a Star donations should be sent to the Fundraising Office, Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust, Raleigh Park, Barnstaple, EX31 4JB.
