Charitable Giving

At Starbank, pupils value service. Throughout the year they support different causes, whether these are ones that have directly affected the school community or where there is a national or international crisis or need for funds.  
They are very proud of the support they give to local, national and international charities. Below are the three school-nominated charities voted by the pupils.  

Mad Hatters Children Charity

We believe we should donate to Mad Hatters charity as it helps children with special educational needs and disabilities. All children should be encouraged to exceed in life, regardless of any extra needs they have. We believe that the Mad Hatters charity supports these children to unlock their full potential. Mad Hatters is dedicated in bringing smiles to all the faces that are referred to them. In order to carry on with their excellent work, they do need some assistance from us.

Acorn Hospice

A parent never imagines their child will be diagnosed with a life limiting or life threatening condition. But when the unimaginable happens, Acorns steps in, helping families cope at every stage of their child’s life and beyond, wherever and whenever they need it. The need for children’s hospice care never stops which is why we are here to provide specialist palliative care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We want the children to have fun even though they are not well and enjoy whatever time have with their families.

Birmingham Children’s Hospital

Birmingham Children’s Hospital is the UK’s leading specialist paediatric centre, caring for sick children and young people up to the age of 16. They are a world leader in some of the most advanced treatments, complex surgical procedures and cutting-edge research and development.
