Touch of Sparkle

£10,325 of £10,500 goal

Raised by 264 people in 48 months
Touch of Sparkle provides 'care packs' to patients at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, UK. The care packs are mostly donated to cancer patients in the oncology department but batches are also produced for other departments as part of special projects, at the request of the hospital. Touch of Sparkle is run by Adam Lambert fans (on an unofficial basis) in aid of the Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust  (reg. charity no. 1170103). 

The idea is to spread a little care and humanity and try to lighten the load for patients. The packages include:

- Practical items (e.g. bed socks, tissues, sweets, herbal tea for anti-sickness)
- Distractions (e.g. puzzle book, notebook, pen, earphones, playing cards)
- Pamper items (e.g. nail varnish, moisturiser, lipbalm)

The items are purchased from donations to this gofundme page and via an Amazon wishlist 
http://www.amazon.co.uk/registry/wishlist/21CWF040BBHYS  in addition to donations from national, local and online businesses. They are then packaged and delivered to patients at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, UK.

Any donations, however small, are very much appreciated to help us spread a touch of sparkle and lend a helping hand to those facing this difficult journey.

Thank you

I would like to say how very touched I was yesterday when on attending my appointment before I start my radiotherapy next week to be given one of your Sparkle bags. I have been very humbled by all love people have shown me. It really shows we do live in a very caring world. The staff I have so far met at the hospital are some of the most caring I have ever met.Every thing in the pack is useful and the cracker and chocolates very seasonal. Many thanks to all of you and a Happy New Year. Margaret Smith
