Bako is a very talented basketball player with boundless enthusiasm and natural ability. He played for the U11’s Sussex team last year and helped them win the county tournament. He has since been selected to play for Brighton Cougars U14 National League Team and clearly has a huge potential. His mother has struggled financially and he wouldn’t be able to continue to attend all the necessary training sessions without our support.

We have been able to award funding towards club fees, camps, travel and new basketball shoes.

Bako’s mum says:
I feel very grateful and relieved that Bako has received this funding opportunity from Starr Trust as with it Bako can now participate in all the teams training and matches available so he can progress in his basketball that he loves and has great talent for

Bako says:
I’m so happy that I have got this funding, hopefully it will help me succeed in basketball. I am a family person and basketball is my passion. Thank you Starr Trust

Update January 2018
We are funding to help further with club fees, camps, travel and new basketball shoes. Bako recently was asked to play for the under 16s National Premier team.
