The party was hosted by The Rt Hon George Osborne MP, chancellor of the Exchequer and Starlight Children’s Foundation, for 45 children with serious and terminal illnesses.

The young guests and their families were greeted by a host of celebrities, entertainers and decorations. Father Christmas was on hand and Danger Mouse was a great hit with the children and the guests, who loved getting their photo taken with him.

“We are absolutely delighted that Danger Mouse was able to take a break from saving the world to support this wonderful party which brings great joy to seriously ill children and their families. We are thrilled that FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment continues to partner with Starlight Children’s Foundation at this special seasonal event,” commented Tessa Moore, SVP global brand management at FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment.

This is the sixth year that Starlight has benefited from the Children’s Christmas Party at 11 Downing Street and the third year that FremantleMedia has supplied one of its characters for the event.
