Amongst our recent supporters are:
  • A team from Arcadia Group – who ran the York RunForAll 10K.
  • York Methodists – who collect plenty of ‘rubbish’ for recycling.
  • Stockton-on-Forest Primary School – who have donated over 1000 books from their school library and made bookmarks for the children of Future Stars.
  • Gladys – who made a beautiful blanket for one of the Future Stars resident girls.
  • Visioncare Optometry, Acomb – who host a recycling collection bin.
  • Andrew – who sent letters and gifts to several of the Future Stars children.

…and so many more.

Whether you have a big budget or none at all, you can make a difference.
