Weʼre raising £5,000 to Support Charlie’s Star Charity. Creating Hope and Smiles for Bereaved Families in the South West of England.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Charlie’s Star is a charity set up in memory of our son Charlie Burns who sadly died a week after his 10th birthday on the 11 October 2011. The charity will provide a 7 day holiday in Cornwall for families living in the South West of England, that have lost a child under the age of 19.
Our aim is to be able to pay for the holiday, transport costs and supplement the costs of their days out during the break, where possible.

About the fundraiser
Since losing Charlie, as a family we threw ourselves into fundraising and have reached £100,000 for various charities. We have always intended to set up a charity in memory of our gorgeous little boy, Charlie. His legacy will continue to live on through us.
