King of Sport and King of Kindness

Sometimes there are people in this world who really make a difference and Les King was one of them.
A man who dedicated so much of his life not only to sport but to those who were disabled or suffering through no fault of their own. His tireless efforts to raise money for causes he believed in cannot be underestimated and his kindness to those around him touched many people’s hearts.
The King has gone but will never be forgotten especially by the Star Throwers charity which will always be indebted to him.

Three Peaks

Had a really pleasant visit from Jez Calaby and Kaori King who were two of the 30(!) amazing people from Imagine It and Agile Marketing that did the Three Peaks in 24 hours challenge last year to raise money for Adrenal Cancer research and Star Throwers. Their fundraising enabled us to purchase two recliners for our welcoming lounge. Thank you so much!

Banham Primary School's Science Week

A big thank you to Banham Community Primary School for holding a non-uniform day recently in aid of Star Throwers.

Pupils are the school dressed up in science themed clothes on Friday 21st March to celebrate National Science Week, which ran from March 17th to 21st. 

So far this academic year, the school has raised more than £200 for our charity. Previous fund raising events include a star theme cake sale, an art competition, and a dress-up day held in the autumn term.

Thanks you so much guys - and you all look very cool

Thank you Norwich Sunblinds!

Norwich Sunblinds donated a generous £613 to Star Throwers this month, raised through pledging to donate £1 for every blind and curtain sold in the month of February.

We were grateful to meet Fiona and Lesley and Norwich Sunblinds and to explain more about what we do at Star Throwers.

Thank you Norwich Sunblinds!
