On Tuesday 20th February 2018 it would have been
Rebekah's 25th birthday.
Will you come to her party ?
If you look up into the sky on a
clear night you will see millions of stars looking
down on us.
One of those stars is named
REBEKAH DEER. One of Beck's friends paid to have a
star named after her.
You do not need a powerful
telescope to pick out the star Rebekah Deer, it is
the one that is smiling ! Rebekah was, of course
known for her infectious smile, a smile that never
went away even when she was very ill.
Yes, OurRebekah is generating support for Ronald
McDonald House Charities but that is our end result,
there is a lot happening before we reach our
destination. Within all of our activities we aim to
have fun, to smile and to put smiles on the faces of
as many others as possible.
On Tuesday 20th February we want THIRTY FIVE friends to send a
firework rocket high into the sky towards Rebekah's
We have thirty-five special rockets to fire to Star
Rebekah Deer, will you fire one ?
We want you to ask friends and family to sponsor
your rocket for £2 on our Just Giving page.
The money we raise will be given to Ronald McDonald
House in Bristol.
If we have 35 rockets with each rocket finding 10
friends supporting with £2 each that will give us:
35 x 10 = 350 x £ 2 = £700
Ronald McDonald House in Bristol works independently
from the charity/'s central administration so we
have had to set up a second Just Giving page. Please
do not be confused by this.
Ronald McDonald House, Bristol is an independent
charity which provides Home from Home accommodation,
free of charge, to the families of critically ill
children receiving care at the Bristol Royal
Hospital for Children. When a child is very ill,
they may need to travel away from home to receive
the treatment that they require. Our aim is to keep
families together during what is probably one of the
most stressful times of their lives. We accommodate
over 800 families each year, providing all the
comforts that you would expect to find in your own
home, with spacious en-suite bedrooms, kitchens and
communal living areas. Bristol is the only dedicated
children’s hospital in the whole of the South West
of England and Wales which means we support families
across the entire region. We are always at full
capacity and have long waiting lists of families
desperately needing our help.
When you fire your rocket we want you to take a
selfie which we will put with all others into a
special gallery. We will have a bit of fun and
a prize for the voted best picture.
Beck's Birthday Rockets are not Apollo 11 nor are
they the traditional garden
fireworks. They are much bigger and will make a
grander explosion in the sky.
There are 35 and ONLY 35 rockets. We can not have
36, Beck would not have been that old, and we can
not have a single rocket less than the all important
number of THIRTY-FIVE.
Beck's birthday may be a little while away but we
need to find those thirty-five mission controllers
as soon as we can. It would be fun if we had rockets
soaring up into the sky from as many different
locations within the country as possible.
We need now to find those 35 mission controllers for

rockets to fire using the form below. Please do not
be shy, assign one of the thirty-five rockets to
