National Star has been hit hard by the coronavirus crisis, including having to temporarily close StarBistro, as we adapt to new ways of working to keep students safe. Many of the young people at National Star have complex disabilities, putting them at greater risk of becoming seriously ill due to coronavirus. We’ve made the tough decision to close StarBistro for the foreseeable future, losing thousands of pounds in income for our charity.
We’ve created the Coffee Collective as a membership platform as an easy, regular way for StarBistro customers and National Star supporters to help us continue our work.
By donating £2.50 a week, the average cost of a cuppa at StarBistro, you’ll continue to support National Star through these difficult times and secure the future of our charity.
We’re hoping to find 1,000 coffee drinkers to pledge their ongoing support to us. Once this pandemic is over, Coffee Collective members will be sure of a very warm welcome and a free cup of coffee at StarBistro when we re-open again!
Sign up today and donate via Virgin Money Giving
£10 is pre-populated in the donation amount via the Virgin Money Giving button. However, you can add as little or as much as you would like to help support our charity.
We hope to feature Coffee Collective members in a supporters’ gallery and on our social media channels to thank you for your ongoing support.
