STAR supporting Somerset`s own children in Need
As STAR does not deliver activities itself, but funds young people to attend those offered by others, it often does not meet the criteria of the large funding organisations, such as Children in Need or Comic Relief. This makes it even harder for the charity to seek funding. The sums we require are not large: just £5 per week will enable a child to go swimming; £30 will support a gym membership and £50 will pay for eleven young people to access a uniformed activity, such as scouts or guides.
