Clark and Partners are proud to sponsor the local based charity Stars in Our Eyes. And following another very successful charity even the local newspaper printed the following.
The Stars in Our Eyes charity music road show rolled into town with another colourful fund-raising event at the weekend.
Acts include Cher, Lady GaGa, Neil Diamond and Freddie Mercury were all represented at the three-hour tribute show at Pastures Lodge, Mexborough, on Saturday night.
And the even raised more than £1,000.00 for wheelchair bound Chris Hanson, of Spotborough.
Colin Rufus, from the Conisbrough based charity which puts on weekly shows to help raise cash for worthy causes throughout the region, said “It was an absolutely fantastic night – another sell out of Stars In Our Eyes which raised a huge chunk towards Chris’s new wheelchair.”
Stars in Our eyes have raised more than £5000,000 for charity since they were formed nine years ago.
They now have a packed schedule of bookings and are sponsored by Sheffield-based mobility specialists, Clark and Partners, which is helping them to continue their charitable work.
Colin said: “Clark and Partners have been a huge help to us and have ensured that we can go on fundraising.”
He Added: “We’re always well received by audiences but when we’ve had a successful show like the one at Pastures Lodge on Saturday night, it makes all our efforts worthwhile.”
We offer our support to Stars in Our Eyes and our congratulations for their 9 year anniversary next week.
Clark and Partners have recently been involved in a fantastic local charity called Stars In Our Eyes. Visit their website here.
Our involvement all started when Joe Hamshaw, a young local lad had a bicycle accident. This unfortunately resulted in Joe suffering a multiple spinal injury resulting in him needing a wheelchair and this is where Stars In Our Eyes have stepped in. This charity has done a fantastic job of raising money to help improve people’s quality of life resulting in raising a total of over £500,000 since its start up 6 years ago.
The charity raises money for many needy causes by performing cabaret nights in clubs throughout the region. The cabaret consists of a series of tribute acts with many familiar faces, such as Cher, Elvis, Tina Turner and even a good looky likey of Freddie Mercury too.
Clark and Partners support came in the form of supplying a Sunrise Medical, Quickie Helium active user wheelchair for Joe and our specialist visited with several manufacturers wheelchairs including Invacare, Kuschall, and Ottobock all which helped Joe make an informed decision to chose the Helium as the product most suited his needs.
Stars In Our Eyes fame has got to the small screen too with a recent appearance on the YTV – Yorkshire Television Calendar Show, they visited a rehearsal and met with Joe and the cast of Stars In Our Eyes.
Clark and Partners would like to thanks to Stars in our eyes for giving us the opportunity to not only help support the charity but to help in making a change to Joe’s life.
