Quote from a StarActiv8 participating School:


“I would like to thank yourself and the Star Foundation for the excellent two days!

The collections brought considerable donations, and the activities for the children were excellent! Combining the collections with an exciting activity is a brilliant idea! Our school has benefited both financially from the collections as well as creating a great buzz amongst the pupils. Thanks again!”

Grants and Sponsorship

Star's grant and sponsorship fund is available to all young people, clubs, schools and organisations to apply for grants or sponsorship from 100-300.


The money can be used for anything to help the school/club keep the young people creative and active or an individual towards their training and travel costs.

Star would not be able to help our local communities and the people in them if it wasn't for the work we do with clubs, the more clubs we help raise funds for through our recycling campaign the more money we will have to give out and help more.

Fund raising for Schools and Clubs has never been easier more exciting or fun. Recycling unwanted items from clothes, shoes, bags, belts, CD/DVD's (scratched, damaged or pirate copies), books and videos and raising money for your school, club or organisation from peoples unwanted items.


We are one of the only Charities that really do recycle items, turning old CD’s back into new music or films, old videos recycled to make new plastic items for your everyday use.


So when working with the Star you will not only be raising money for your school, club or organisation, you will be helping re-invest money raised from our efforts back into the local communities we work in and you live in, by sponsoring young people to help them achieve their goals no matter how big or small. After all the children are our future....


Through our StarActiv8 program we want to encourage young people to see what great activities are in their local communities so working with schools on their fund raising days taking local clubs and organisations in giving them the opportunity to show off their activity provides a great all round community spirit.
