At a time when our resources are required more than ever before, specialist IT company Cambridge Support has made an amazing pledge to provide completely free of charge services for STARS children’s charity.
This generous gift of high-level expertise is immensely important to our work with bereaved children and young people facing grief in Cambridgeshire.
Pure Resourcing (Cambridge)
Having raised £3479 for Stars in 2016/17, professional recruitment specialists Pure have adopted STARS as their charity of the year for the second year – thank you! Their always-popular annual quiz night has already raised a record £1880, and this came hot on the heels of their recently completed 12-mile walk from Waterbeach to Ely, raising £168. All funds raised go directly to help children struggling with the loss of someone close.
Now, Pure has put together a 12 strong team to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on 12th May 2018. Intensive training begins now! As well as completing the arduous three peaks, a total of 23 miles and 5200 ft ascent in 12 hours, the team aim to raise a magnificent £5000 and need your help. Their dedicated fundraising and team news page have been set up here where you can see the latest updates and pledge your support.
Further updates on the Three Peaks team’s progress will also follow on this site.
