Jade-Alicia Pollitt, paralegal at Minster Law, shares her recent experience supporting STAR Bereavement. 

On 6 April, myself and two colleagues joined STAR Bereavement as part of our annual Corporate Social Responsibility programme (CSR) day.  The days are a Minster-wide initiative which encourages colleagues to get out of the office and into the community to support worthy causes.

STAR had contacted us because they needed some help with moving premises and needed some assistance with lifting, carrying, and transporting of items from one site to the other.

On arriving at The Ridings, we were met by Lorraine, a project support worker for STAR, who was very approachable and welcoming to us. Lorraine talked us through the aim of the day and soon we were put to work moving the resources needed.

Once all the of the heavy lifting was done, and the van loaded, we headed over to the new premises and started to unload and neatly store everything ready for it’s first use.

Lorraine was joined by her colleague, Claire, who gave us more background about STAR and the important work that they do. STAR Bereavement are a children’s charity based in Wakefield providing information and education for young people and their families about bereavement and serious illness, so they have support when they need it most.  They can help by providing individual support or group support. They hold activity days through the school holidays at different venues in Wakefield. Covering all things from boxing to puppy therapy and mindfulness crafts.

The CSR days are so important. Not only for us to support the charities that need it, but also to highlight those charities that can help others so much. You never know when you may need support.

I am already looking forward to the next CSR day.
