We have received an offer from a London Marathon participant to raise funds for us through sponsorship. If you are running and are looking for a charity to support then we have set up an event on our online donation pages. You can set up your own fundraising page by clicking on the link here. You can collect online payments here and for those who are eligible we can collect Gift Aid too, meaning their donation is boosted by 25%!
Runners who are raising funds for us will receive a charity running shirt and we will share your details on our social media sites.
The Virgin London Marathon starts in Greenwich Park, next to the Greenwich Observatory. Runners then make their way through Woolwich, past the Thames Barrier and then Cutty Sark. They will then continue towards Bermondsy. At the twelve-mile point they will see Tower Bridge, which they cross before turning right towards Canary Wharf. Next on towards Limehouse and the 20-miles stage, where many runners may ‘hit the wall’ as their bodies run out of energy. Those who continue will pass the Tower of London, run along Embankment, past the Houses of Parliament and past Nelson’s Column reaching the final 500m along Birdcage Walk, past Buckingham Palace and over the finish line to the sound of well-deserved cheers
Please make sure you have secured a place in this event before you start fundraising.
Tesco’s store in Strood hosted Oakley’s Outings / Share a Star in their entrance hall to raise awareness and funds today. Lorraine and Steven Orange manned the stall all day with help from friends. Fellow trustee Colin Taylor joined them at lunchtime.
Thanks to all who supported the charity, £177.70 was collected and more people are aware of Share S Star and Oakley’s Outings. Thanks also to Tesco Strood for hosting us.
Share A Star’s 12 Stars of Christmas project is online now. The first Star delivery can be seen happening. There will be news and videos of our 12 Stars every day for the next 12 days. See the charity’s website post here.

We have fiverunners lined up for this year’s Great North Run for you to support including two of Jessica’s carers, one sponsored by our care provider agency Pulse Community Healthcare, the other running as an independant!
Nicholas Bannister – Local lad No1 [Newcastle] “I am running the Great North Run this year to raise money for Share a Star. They are a fantastic organisation who have helped someone dear to me.”
Michael Price – Local Lad No2 [Newcastle] “Despite vowing never to run another Great North run, I once again find myself preparing to put myself through one of the world’s biggest half marathons! What better way to celebrate the day than knowing that you’ve helped put a smile on a sick child’s / young person’s face!”
