 The County Durham Community Foundation who manages the Star Giving Fund provides grants that make a genuine difference to the lives of local people. They manage charitable funds donated by local individuals, families, businesses and trusts, building up a source of long-term support for the community and acting as the vital link between donors and local needs, enabling people to achieve far more than they could by themselves.

They are dedicated to helping communities grow by creating opportunities and tackling issues of disadvantage and exclusion.

"I am thrilled to be a Patron for Star Radio and Star Giving. I was involved at the inception of this great radio station and I am delighted that it so quickly found its place in people's hearts.  It is now also at the heart of the Star Giving charity which helps so many other charities, groups and organisations in our area. It is helping to make a positive difference to people's lives. We very much appreciate you helping to do this. Thank you and long may it continue." - Pam Royle
