Sainsbury's continue their support

Each year Sainsbury’s help a charity with in-store promotions and money raising ideas and this year they are supporting the work that we are doing at Star Throwers.

Recently Star Throwers founder, Henry Mannings gave a presentation to staff at the Longwater store about what Star Throwers is doing at the Centre in Wymondham. The presentation described Star Throwers alternative treatments and therapies for people who were suffering with cancer, as well as  helping their friends and relatives to cope with the problems they face supporting their loved ones.

To date, staff at Sainsbury's Longwater have donated £500 and some much needed bed linen and general houseware. In addition, one staff member has helped with a bucket collection on a Saturday night and 10 members of staff at the Longwater store helped with the gardening and painting the Summer House.

The thanks of all the volunteers and visitors goes to the wonderful staff and Sainsbury's Longwater for your continued enthusiasm and support.

Local sport lovers support Star Throwers again

Our thanks again go to Les King and the many generous sports fans at the recent football fixture between Wymondham Town F.C. and Dereham Town F.C., who raised an amazing £850 for Star Throwers.

Mr King who is 'Life President' of Wymondham Town F.C. and also Hardingham Cricket Club, visited Star Throwers last week to present us with the cheque and said "I'm very pleased that I live locally and that Star Throwers is in Wymondham. I think it's a very good cause for me to help."

All of the volunteers and visitors to Star Throwers are so generous to Mr King and the supporters at local sports events for their continued support of the work that we are doing.
