Presentation to Star Throwers

 

 

A cheque for 250 has been presented to Wymondham-based cancer charity Star Throwers by Hethersett resident Peter Steward, one of six recipients of South Norfolk to be honoured in the South Norfolk Queen's Diamond Jubilee Community Awards for 2012.

Peter won the Inspiring Achievement award for "an outstanding contribution to Hethersett over the past 20 years."

The cheque was presented to Dr Henry Mannings of Star Throwers at the charity's day centre in Wymondham, Our picture shows Peter presenting the cheque to Dr Henry. Also pictured is charity patron Les King, South Norfolk Councillor David Bills and supporters.

"I was delighted to be able to help such a worthwhile charity in a small way. The support work undertaken at the Day Centre is vital and to be able to help them has inspired me and many other people as well. I would also like to thank South Norfolk Council for giving me the opportunity to support the centre," Peter Steward said.

"It is people like Peter that help to keep Star Throwers going. Without their generosity we wouldn't be able to exist and we are eternally grateful for the support we receive," said Dr Mannings and his view was echoed by district councillor Bills:

"It is great to see the wonderful work being done by Star Throwers and the fact that this is recognised in donations from people like Peter. Having seen how the charity works I am 100 % behind them."

Meanwhile Les King said that he was delighted to be involved with Star Throwers:

"I am extremely pleased and honoured to be patron of Star Throwers. The charity is run by volunteers and we are so grateful for all the help and support we receive both at the day centre and the shop," he said.

Star Throwers has a charity shop in Wymondham town centre.
