Why donate to the coronavirus appeal?

The wellbeing and prosperity of the local community is at the heart of every Star school. As such, we take time to understand the challenges faced by children, their families and those in our local areas. With your support we can alleviate the suffering of vulnerable families, who are struggling due to the negative social and economic effects of the coronavirus, in each of our local communities nationwide. Shine Charity is working with Star Academies to raise funding and identify and help those most in need.

By donating, you will help us reach the members of our Star family that need us most by providing:


food vouchers to Star family members who cannot afford to feed themselves


toiletry and home hygiene vouchers to Star families who are in financial difficulty


provide PPE packs to local care homes, GP surgeries and hospitals


advice and support for those in fuel poverty


access to technology and stationery to any Star pupils who do not have these resources in their homes


a telephone helpline to support parents requiring advice about home learning
