The Sick Children's Trust has been chosen as one of the charities for this year's Starbucks' #RedCupCheer community programme. 

Between 1-24 December, we'll be making lots of social media 'noise' to win a £1,000 grant to support families with seriously ill children in hospital this Christmas. The charity with the most mentions (or noise) will win a £1,000 grant.

Here's how you can take part and support The Sick Children's Trust:

  • If you use twitter:
    • Retweet tweets from @TheSCT twitter page which have the hashtag #redcupcheer - we'll be posting lots of fun festive content over the next few weeks!
    • Tweet using the #redcupcheer hashtag, tagging in @TheSCT, from your own twitter account - why not take your very own redcup selfie?
    • We'll then retweet and share your tweets to help us make lots of 'noise' online
  • If you don't use twitter, you can still support us:

This Christmas, we know our ten 'Homes from Home' will be full with families as our staff provide the emotional and practical support they need to stay by their seriously ill child's side. This grant will help us keep families together during the festive season, when it matters most. 

If you have any questions about how you can take part, please email
