See what some of our fundraising stars have been up to…
Lynne gets on her bike to say thanks
Lynne Barry took part in Ride London, a 100-mile cycle ride, to say thanks to National Star for supporting her cousin Jon after he had a car accident. Jon’s world was changed forever when he sustained a brain injury, which meant that he couldn’t support his body, hold his head up or even swallow. Lynne raised a fantastic £1,700.
Cheltenham Challenge turns up the heat
Liz Steel took her role as one of our 50th Anniversary Ambassadors to the next level when she completed the Cheltenham Challenge 10k in aid of National Star. Liz walked the route in blistering June heat, raising a whopping £600.
Going the extra mile
Taking on a 50km run requires stamina, extreme fitness and dedication. Luckily for National Star, Andrew Evans and Becky Amor have that in abundance! The pair took on the Cotswold Way Challenge, raising a fabulous £535.
Anne’s big birthday wish
Anne Davies, a long-standing supporter of National Star, decided to ask for something special when she celebrated a big birthday. She invited family and friends to make a donation to National Star instead of giving her a present, and raised a fabulous £870.
Coffee, cake and fundraising
National Star 50th Anniversary Ambassadors Gill and Roger Workman, Chairman of Cotteswold Dairy, hosted a summer coffee morning in their lovely garden in aid of National Star. With the support of their family, friends and a team of volunteers, they served delicious cake and coffee, and guests also had the opportunity to buy plants, homemade treats and jams. It was a memorable day, raising an incredible £3,000.
