Volunteering in full bloom

National Star volunteers at a tea and cake fundraiser

Spring was in the air at Colesbourne Gardens as visitors toured its stunning national collection of snowdrops and sampled tea and cake served by National Star volunteers.

We are very grateful to our incredible bakers and 16 volunteers who donated their time to staff the Gloucestershire venue’s tea room, raising a fantastic £2,467 for the charity.

We would also like to thank Waitrose, TURF, BIOPak and R&R Hire for their generous donations, which helped make this event such a success.

‘Without our fabulous volunteers and our corporate supporters, we wouldn’t be able to run fundraising events such as this,’ said Catrin Viveash, Fundraising Manager at National Star.

‘Thank you so much to everyone involved.’

The generosity of volunteers, who support the charity with a range of activities including bucket collections, working in our shops and helping to spruce up our buildings and gardens, makes continuing our life-changing work with young people with disabilities possible.

With the days growing longer, warmer and lighter, could you throw open your garden to organise a community fundraiser with your neighbours? Get in touch with our Fundraising team to share your ideas at or on 01242 524478.
