Last year patients were very moved with receiving hand-made items like lovely toilet bags, pencil cases, beanies etc. and that someone went to the trouble to make these things to give to them.
Starlight has asked also, if able, can your gifts be in a gift type bag - which can be a recycled one.
Gift bags- can be recycled as long as in good condition, can also use commercial gifts bags that you get when you are shopping
Starlight are often short of presents suitable for men.
All items must be new (but may be re gifted if you were given something that you cannot use). This gift may be the only gift that the person may receive at Christmas.
