Upholstery manufacturer Collins and Hayes has helped to raise nearly £10,000 for Brighton-based charity the Starr Trust by sponsoring two of the charity’s recent events. The Starr Trust supports young people aged between 10-18 years to fulfil their full potential in sports, arts and education by providing a helping hand to achieve their goals at a time when they really need it.

Collins and Hayes sponsored the charity’s annual golf day, held recently at East Brighton Golf Course which raised £3500. A second multi sport event, The Starr Wars Challenge, held on 13th September, raised in excess of £6500. Collins and Hayes’ sponsorship enabled a team of four young people to enter the challenge event which culminated in an Award Ceremony by Robin Cousins, the charity’s patron.

Matt O’Flynn, MD says: “We are delighted to have been able to support this worthy cause and we wish the Starr Trust every success in their future fundraising.”
