Partnership Ends with Sainsburys Attleborough

Sadly a year has passed and our partnership as Sainsburys Attleborough Charity of the Year is now over. We'd like to say a big thank you to all the staff and customers at Sainsburys Attleborough for your kindness in fundraising and raising awareness of our work over the last 12 months.

We were also lucky to meet some members of the Sainsburys team in person recently, when they came to present a cheque of £2500, raised from their recent sponsored walk and also merchandise sales throughout the year.

A massive thank you once again for all your support and hope that your partnership with new Charity of the Year is as positive as ours was!

Thank You John

A big thank you to John Soanes for raising £890 plus GiftAid by doing a sponsored skydive at Beccles airfield in May. John said he always wanted to do a skydive and finally decided to do so on his 50th Birthday. He also said he chose Star Throwers as we helped a member of his family recently.  

We were glad to show John around our care centre when he came to visit us to present his sponsorship money, so he could see what his fundraising was supporting. 

A big thank you John! Hope you had a great time!
