CRUK - Little Star Awards



Little Star Poster

A little bit about Little Star awards. They’re given to children with cancer and Cancer Research UK would like more children to receive them, so they have asked if we could pass on the details to any families that are involved with us, that have a child with cancer. There’s no selection process and so any child that is nominated receives the award. Also there is no money or sponsorship involved.

Award details

Little Star awards recognise the courage of children diagnosed with cancer. Every child nominated for a Little Star award receives a trophy, a t-shirt, a £50 voucher to spend in TK Maxx, a certificate signed by celebrities (including JLS, Mo Farah and England Captain Steven Gerrard), and an official JLS full colour tour programme. The siblings of the nominated child also receive a certificate.

How it works

Parents, friends and relatives from across the UK can put forward the name of a Little Star who is dear to them for special recognition. There is no selection process, or even hint of a competition, it is open for all children that meet the following criteria:

1. Under 18 years of age and live in the UK.

2. Haven’t received a Little Star Award before.

3. Have been diagnosed in the past 5 years.

Then they become a Little Star. That’s all there is to it.
