Volunteers are essential members of the Starlight team. Not only is their dedication, positivity, enthusiasm and attitude an inspiration, our programs simply wouldn't happen without them! 

Since they give up their precious free time to brighten the lives of sick kids, the least we can do is organise a fun event as a way of saying "thanks!"

We've just wrapped up our 'Volunteer Thank You' events around the country. It was a joy to see our vollie community come together to celebrate the great work they do; they truly are a community like no other.

Thank you to every single one of our volunteers. Whether you volunteer a little, a lot, in the hospital or elsewhere - you do an incredible job helping to brighten the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children, young people and their families.
