Each year, we decide as a team on our Charity of the Year. In 2022, we’re very pleased to be supporting Star Throwers, a local cancer support charity.
Cancer has touched the lives of a number of team members, and we’re all aware of the very sobering statistics, with someone in the UK being diagnosed with cancer every two minutes.* So, we are keen to do what we can to help a local charity doing great work in this field.
Star Throwers provides an individually focused support service for cancer patients and their carers. From cancer information sessions to wellbeing support, all of the support Star Throwers offer is completely free, thanks to their donors and supporters.
You can find out more about all the wonderful work they’re doing – and the story behind their name – visit the Star Throwers website.
We have some big plans to show our support this year, including raising money through some sponsored events – we’ve already got members of the team lined up to climb Snowdon and take part in a sky dive. We’re also sponsoring the Charity Golf Day which is being held at the Bawburgh Golf Course in October to raise funds for Star Throwers and another local cancer charity, Finnbar’s Force.
Keep an eye out for details of these events and how you can sponsor the team in our newsletter.
We’re really looking forward to working with the Star Throwers team this year. If you would like to support Star Throwers in other ways too, you can become a “Friend of Star Throwers” on their website: https://www.starthrowers.org.uk/supporting-us/become-a-friend-of-star-throwers/
