GoCharitable.com is a new fundraising business that helps to raise money for the Starlight Children’s Foundation which aims to bring smiles and laughter into the lives of seriously and terminally ill children.

Starlight endeavours to grant ‘special’ wishes to ill children and create fun in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.

GoCharitable.com has been set up by Fil Adams-Mercer, who is the founder of the UK’s largest online parcel company Parcel2Go and a cancer survivor himself.
“Everybody who works for GoCharitable has experience of the charity sector. They are a great team and have all run marathons or had silly hair-cuts! We donate half of our profits to the Starlight Children’s Foundation every month so it is a great way for businesses and homes to support the charity,” said Mr Adams-Mercer.

GoCharitable provides everyday office consumables like printer paper, rubbish sacks and toilet rolls which have been made from recycled material wherever possible, and available near their Bolton HQ.
“This helps us to keep our carbon footprint low, and to help to promote jobs in our local community here in Bolton,” said Mr Adams-Mercer.

The money donated to the charity allows children’s dreams to come true and lift them in times when they may be afraid or in pain.

Every single wish is different as the children choose their own, from holidays, meeting famous footballers, singing with JLS and much more. Starlight strives to make every child and family have a moment to cherish forever. Starlight is a nationwide charity granting wishes in homes, hospices and hospitals throughout the country.
