Funding Boost from the Star Trust

Think Children's effective early help in the Broxtowe area of Nottinghamshire, has been given a much-needed boost from East Midlands-based charity, the Star Trust. Representatives from the Star Trust, Tim Dowling and Cleo Lacey visited Think Children's Newark offices to present a cheque for £3,583 to our Development Manager, Wendy Walton-Towle.  Co-founded by Tim Maxted of Berkeley Insurance and Steve Hampson of Hampson Group, the Star Trust is run by local business owners and entrepreneurs, supporting good causes across the region. Using members' business expertise and commercial initiative, the Star Trust holds events throughout the year to raise money for locally-run charities that can often struggle to secure public donations, simply because they lack the profile of national organisations. High-profile, well-attended and a lot of fun, Star Trust events raise in the region of £100,000 for local charities each year. The generous donation to Think Children was from funds raised from the 2016 The Star Trust Motoring Day.
