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!”

to young people so more are able to enjoy physical and creative activities

in their own local community, all raised by recycling unwanted items,

great news for local communities, young people and the environment.”

StarActiv8 Collection Day:


On the pre-booked date of your collection your school will have a local community activity for the whole day FREE of charge. Working with your Sports Development Team utilising our network of clubs/groups

organisations we will be bringing them in for the day to provide your pupils with a physical or creative activity. Depending on the size of the school we may arrange upto 3 activities for the day.


After School Club:

With the expert knowledge of local sports clubs, the Sports Development Team will oversee the sports Coaches and Clubs that are brought in.

To ensure the quality of this programme either Clubmark Clubs or competent and qualified coaches/instructors will be provided. All other activities will be checked out by our team. This will normally be the same club provided on the Activity day and in most cases the same Coach to help provide continuity for the children.


Exit Plan:

By utilising the same club, instructors and coaches from local community clubs and organisations we are providing the perfect opportunity to young people to find an activity they may have never known was so close.
