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!”
