Lloyds is proudly partnering with Starlight Children’s Foundation

As a company, Lloyds recognises the important role we play in the community and we’re proud to use our specialist services
to help people in need. The whole team at Lloyds Auctions are thrilled to partner with Starlight Children’s Foundation with this
world-leading, innovative new approach to tax deductible giving.

Here at Lloyds we know that sometimes it’s difficult to donate as much as you would like, that’s why we have volunteered our
auction platform for people to auction their valuable items which they no longer need, and donate the proceeds directly to
help Starlight brighten the lives of sick kids and their families.

At Starlight, they know that happiness matters to sick kids going through incredibly tough times. Happiness helps sick kids
cope with the pain of treatment, reduces fear and anxiety, and builds resilience that lasts a lifetime.

“Being seriously ill shouldn’t mean missing out on the fun of childhood, especially when evidence shows happiness helps kids bounce back after going through tough times.” Louise Baxter, Starlight CEO.

“As a parent myself, I can attest that the sound of my children laughing is the best sound in the world! I am so proud the Lloyds team and customers are able to help Starlight ensure that sick kids all across Australia will be laughing even when they’re in hospital.” Lee Hames, Lloyds COO.


Simply click the "Sell my Item" button at the top or bottom of this page and submit the short form. You will see a confirmation message on the screen once submitted, and a Starlight Auctions team member will be in touch within 3 business days to discuss your donation.

There are only 4 simple steps!

  1. Submit the form! 
  2. Drop your item to your local Lloyds Auctions office and sign your donation Agreement! 
  3. Lloyds will look after the entire valuation and sales process for you, at no cost to you or Starlight!
  4. Once your item has sold, Lloyds will transfer your donation (sold amount less GST) to Starlight who will email you your tax deductible receipt! 

Once your item has sold via Lloyds Auctions platform, your donation amount (full sales value less GST) will be transferred to Starlight on your behalf. Upon receipt of the donation, Starlight will issue your tax deductible receipt to your email address.

After the sale of your item, you can expect to receive your tax-deductible receipt within 3-4 weeks.

Starlight knows that happiness matters to sick kids facing serious illness.


For over 35 years, Starlight have worked across Australia's alongside health professionals to bring fun, joy and  laughter to sick kids and their families – so “sick kids” can simply be “kids”. Happiness helps kids cope better with painful treatments and fell less anxious about what lies ahead.


That’s why Starlight exists. Because Happiness Matters
