Our Ambassadors are passionate about inspiring others to help our Champions. They have a personal connection with the Starr Trust, which has affected them. Our honorary Ambassadors are our representatives, who help us build community connections. We are extremely grateful for the huge impact their contributions make to the Starr Trust.
“I am incredibly honoured to be asked to become an ambassador for the Starr Trust, the Trust has touched the lives of my family in such an enormously beneficial and supportive way, helping to positively change the direction of my daughter’s life.
As a family we owe the Trust a huge debt of gratitude and we have endeavoured to help the Trust in any way possible - becoming an ambassador will allow me to further support the trust to help other young people and continue their amazing work.”
“I am humbled and honoured to be recognised for the work I do as Ambassador in the community for Starr Trust.
I have known the Starr family for a number of years. Through my involvement in sport I have held fundraising events to raise funds and the profile of the charity.
What made me get more involved was the fact that I felt an empathy to the young people benefitting and it really struck a chord with me. As a young child I was bullied as I had dyslexia which in those days wasn’t diagnosed early on and became overweight. This then caused me to have low self esteem and no self confidence. By giving back through my time and hopefully inspiring others to follow I feel that I am helping the local young community to have a chance that was not there for me.”
