Sasha has a Star Fund in memory of her son Marcus who died of neuroblastoma

Fundraising In Memory

Pay tribute to the memory of someone special by making a donation, holding a collection at the funeral or setting up a Star Fund. Your support helps Sparks fund pioneering children’s medical research giving hope to thousands of children, babies and mums-to-be.

Star Funds Sasha and Marcusweb

“The loss of Marcus has left a massive hole in my heart, one that cannot be filled, but by fundraising in Marcus’ memory for the incredible work of Sparks, a part of me is able to find some peace of mind and much-needed comfort.” 

Sasha Field, Marcus’ mum. 

Setting up a Star Fund in memory of a loved one

Star Funds are a lovely, personal way to celebrate the life of someone you care about. Friends and family will be able to leave special messages, favourite memories and videos whilst fundraising to support our ground breaking research.

It’s easy to set up a Star Fund on but if you have any questions please call on 0207 091 7750 or email us and we will be happy to help.

Once your Star Fund is set up, we will be in touch with seed paper so you can grow your own forget-me-not flowers in memory of your loved one, a star pin badge and some information on the work that Sparks does.

Here are some of our existing Star Funds:
