MEET OUR FUNDRAISERS

Find out what fundraising they have been up to on our star wall of fame

Glitter Kate

When she was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2020, Kate was 25 weeks pregnant. She said, 'Having the support from charities has been crucial. I would love to be able to raise awareness of the seriousness of catching cancer early, and to give something back so that they can continue to offer support to other people in my position. Combining this desire with my belief that you can cover anything in glitter and make it better. I have had the somewhat crazy idea of walking through my hometown covered head to toe in glitter – whilst 8 months pregnant!' Kate completed her walk in August and raised a whopping £4,000 for Mummy's Star!

FUNDRAISER OF THE MONTH

Kirsten’s
Lockdown 10k

After her 10k race in June was cancelled, Star Mum Kirsten decided to do a Virtual Run instead, raising £650 in the process! 'I only found one place to turn to where they truly understood the conflicting place in which I found myself and I am still am so very grateful for Mummy’s Star.'

Up The O2 for Mother’s Day

3 of our lucky Mums were given the opportunity to climb the O2 as part of Experience Days Mother’s Day Event! Paula even raised an amazing £1,400 and said 'It was a fantastic experience, thank you for inviting me to participate. Certainly a highlight and a day I won’t forget. I’m so happy I could fundraise to help other families.'
Thank you to Experience Days for providing this wonderful Mother’s Day gift. x

Christmas Cheer!

Collin and Liz gave up their weekends to delight customers at their local Garden Centre and raised and amazing £1,266.00! Thank you to everyone who visited them!

Elodie and Amelia’s Big Scooter Ride

Elodie and her little sister took their scooters for a trip 'to try to raise money for people who helped my Mummy. I want to help them look after other people who are poorly.' They raised a wonderful £632 and had lots of fun!

12 Parkruns in a Day!

Nor longer able to meet for their usual team runs, this club upped their game to incorporate fun challenges into their training! Including drawing a star with their running app, collecting street names to spell MUMSTAR and a 21 mile challenge. Since Lock-down they have raised £1,450!

500 Miles for Mummy's Star!

Throughout December, Will ran an amazing 500 miles, building up from 1 mile on the 1st, 2 miles on the 2nd to yes…31 miles on the 31st!! He brought the local community along too and raised an astonishing £5,000. What a Star!

Braving
the Shave!

Luke’s wife was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma while pregnant, 'Neither Janine nor I had heard of Mummy’s Star before Janine’s diagnosis, so to raise some awareness of the organisation, Janine and Jessica shaved my head in a Big Charity Haircut on Facebook Live.  Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, which includes £250 of match funding from Newcastle law firm Muckle LLP, we were able to raise over £800.'

Boxing Day
Dip

While most of us were wrapped up warm playing with our presents, Vicki and her team were busy raising funds by bravely taking a dip in the North Sea… That’s one way to work off your Christmas Dinner!
