BOSP's Fundraising Travelling Star £6 large/ £3.00 small - How far can he go?
Sales of our BOSP Star softies go towards maintaining our mini-bus. Let's see how far BOSP's star can travel and build awareness of the vital support we provide. Just some of the places he has been so far...on safari in Kenya, The Grand Canyon and the Grand Prix in Singapore.
Step 1. Place an order to purchase your felt star for £6 (large) £3.50 (small), by emailing us at email@example.com or by calling us on 01277 624300 (cash or bank transfer accepted). Step 2. Take him with you when you go out or give him to a friend or family member on their travels, remembering to take a photograph of BOSP’s star. Step 3. Load up the photograph to BOSP’s Facebook page @Brighter Opportunities through Supported Play or Twitter @BOSPEssex telling us where he is, or if you prefer send in your picture/caption by email.
