Star-Name-Registry prides itself on being a local company based in the UK and feel very importantly about giving back to the community. We regularly provide support and aid to charities, local and internationally! Take a look at some of the charities and events we've been involved with...
The Wallich - Doing something about homelessness in wales
The Wallich is doing something about homelessness in Wales. We believe that everyone deserves the right to feel safe, valued and positive about their future. We support over 5,000 people affected by homelessness across Wales each year, providing some of the most vulnerable people in society with the accommodation and support they need to live safer, happier, more independent lives and to become part of their communities.
Working in partnership with service users, The Wallich look to develop long term solutions, rather than short term fixes, in order to get people off the streets, keep people off the streets and to create opportunities for people as they begin to re-build their lives.
Supporting Joe Hazael's Go Sober for October!
This week, Star-Name-Registry is cheering on Joe Hazael for going sober in October!
Joe has taken on a great challenge for himself this October, taking part in Go Sober For October, Joe has dedicated himself to not touching the ale for the next month to raise money and awareness for MacMillan cancer support!
Sadly Joe's own mother passed away to cancer and to his own admission, MacMillan and the nurse treating Joe's mum has been absolutely incredible. Take a look at Joe's Go Sober page here!
LGBT Cymru Helpline & Counselling Service
The LGBT Cymru Helpline is a free support service for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender people in Wales. It is a purely voluntary organisation who aim to provide information, advice and support to LGBT people and their friends and family with a range of issues.
Cancer Research is the world's leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. Saving millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. The survival rate has doubled over the last 40 years. Partly, thanks to the generosity of millions of individuals worldwide.
Every day in the UK there are more than 400 people diagnosed with cancer that will survive the disease for longer than 10 years. We think this isn't good enough.
Cancer research could not do this without the help of people across the planet looking to raise money, and considering there are more than 200 types of cancer itself, this is no easy task. Office Space in Town and their amazing colleagues have made their own JustGiving page to help raise funds for their Cancer Research Race for Life.
Office Space in Town will be carrying out the 5k run on 17th July and we're doing what we can to help sponsor them! Check out more about their
Change Step is a CAIS led and DACW managed Peer mentoring and advice service for military veterans and others with post traumatic stress disorder and a range of psychosocial problems who want to make positive changes to their lives.
The service is delivered by veterans for veterans and aims to support those seeking help for problems encountered as a result of military or operational duty.
Not only do Change Step offer incredible support for our countries' veterans, it also aims to help those in dire need who may be homeless after leaving the Armed Forces.
In February of 2016, Star-Name-Registry was incredibly proud to offer Change Step a donation of goods including Shaving Kits, Wash kits, Warm knitwear and other goods to help out those in need.
Life For African Mothers
In 2015 we established a connection with an amazing charity, Life for African Mothers. In total we donated £1,000 to help provide aid and support to Life for African Mothers alone, a donation that was met with equal praise and thanks from the staff at Life For African Mothers!
Life for African mothers is a Maternal Health charity aiming to make birth safer in Sub Saharan African, providing medication to treat eclampsia and post partum haemorrhage. By providing medication to treat the complications of child birth, Life For African Mothers have been able to support hospital and health centres across Africa and see a huge reduction in maternal mortality.
They also facilitate midwifery training programmes in several countries to help train and upgrade qualified midwives to enhance their clinical skills in caring for mother and baby.
When Aiden was born 13 years ago 4 months prematurely he wasn't expected to live for 10 minutes. Beyond all the hopes of his medical team Aiden survived. Aiden was, however, left with severe Dystonic Athetoid Cerebral Palsy. This condition means that Aiden can't move his limbs, is registered blind and has to endure painful muscle spasms.
Due to Aiden's unique challenges he needs a lot of specialised equipment. The aim of Aiden's Charity is to raise £35,000 over the next five years in order to fund this so Aiden can live a more comfortable life.
Aiden's independence could be massively improved through the use of specially adapted computers. Access to this equipment will allow Aiden to access the education he needs, increasing his confidence and sense of personal achievement.
Despite of his difficulties Aiden is an incredibly happy, funny boy. Aiden loves cooking, plays table cricket with a disabled cricket team and is a member of the Eddie Stobart Spotters Club. Aiden is also a keen Harry Potter fan - his chair is made by a company called Dragon Mobility so Aiden is very proud to be a Dragon Rider like Harry.
This is a hugely important cause which is why we are highlighting it and contributing towards this fund. We hope you will be able to help this cause and keep Aiden smiling.
Cardiff Homeless Charity event
Amongst working with official registered charities, Star-Name-Registry also got involved in a local, company-held event involving 3 members of staff who obtained large quantities of blankets, foods, drinks & other vital supplies, packed them into backpacks and then took to the streets of Cardiff to hand out the backpacks as a December event.
Despite not being a registered charity, the warm welcome received by the homeless was outstanding and we all got a warm thank you from the local community. We firmly believe in giving back, especially to those who are in need.
