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!”

Through the Star Foundation recycling fund raising campaigns more young people have greater opportunities, enabling them the freedom to enjoy a whole range of sporting and creative activities, including Music, Arts Media within school’s and community led projects nationwide.
As we are all aware, the lack of community support and activities are major factors in the increase of gang culture and violence. One of the factors that led our key ambassador John Regis to kindly donate his time and influence to our cause is that his own nephew was a victim of a knife attack.
The young people of our communities play an integral part in the future development of our regions, by involving them in the Recycling campaigns that will generate income into their own clubs, school or social centres. Doing this The Star Foundation intends to create a greater community spirit and instil a sense of pride and self worth which in turn will encourage personal discipline and enhance community spirit.
When engaging with a club or school to help raise funds, we work with them and all their members to collect unwanted, clothes, shoes, CD/DVDs and books, turning these into much needed funds for the clubs, schools, groups and local community projects that help young people in the UK. Our aim is to have as many clubs, schools and organisations on board our Rags2Riches recycling campaign so that more money can be re-invested into the grass roots of communities nationwide.
“With The Star Foundation making available funds for sponsorship
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.”
