Christmas Donation to Emily’s Star

At Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors, we believe in the power of giving back, especially during the festive season. Instead of sending traditional Christmas cards, every year we choose to make a meaningful impact by supporting a local charity. This year we have chosen to support Emily’s Star—a beacon of hope for children and families in Milton Keynes for over 11 years.

Emily’s Star goes beyond providing assistance; they create a lifeline for families facing the challenges of life-threatening or life-limiting conditions in their children. From birth until the age of 25, Emily’s Star offers tailored support through 1-2-1 sessions, memory-making activities, large group events, and fulfilling yearly wishes.

This incredible organisation extends its reach to premature babies, generously donating clothing and emergency care packs to hospitals across the UK. While the full neonatal boxes are a special gift for Milton Keynes University Hospital, mini packs are sent with care to families nationwide—completely free of charge.

The dedication of Emily’s Star is truly inspiring, and their mission is fuelled by the memory of Emily, who, unfortunately, left this world after just 26 days, having been diagnosed with Trisomy 18 at birth—a condition more prevalent in the UK than one might realise.

Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors is proud to sponsor 5 neonatal boxes and 5 mini packs, which help bring comfort and joy to those who need it most.
