Cambridge Independent publisher Iliffe Media receives its star for supporting Shining Stars appeal with Ormiston Families

The Cambridge Independent’s publisher, Iliffe Media, has received its star to mark its support of a campaign with Ormiston Families Stars.

We have been campaigning to raise £10,000 for the children’s bereavement support service through our Shining Stars appeal.

The service, which is based off Newmarket Road in Cambridge, provides specialist support and counselling to children in Cambridgeshire who are struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one.

Businesses and organisations can sponsor a star, as Iliffe Media has, for £750.

That pays for a child to receive two specialist bereavement counselling sessions with a Stars practitioner.

Those sponsoring a star will receive coverage in the Cambridge Independent and across our social media channels, and those of Ormiston Families, as well as receiving a keepsake trophy.

Vicky Matthews, senior corporate partnerships manager for Ormiston Families, said she was thrilled to have Iliffe Media's support.

She said: "Iliffe have been fantastic supporters of Stars with the Cambridge Independent's Shining Stars campaign making a real impact. We've had so many people get in touch and it's helped raise the profile of Stars, and raise some crucial funds.

"Our relationships with local businesses are vital to our work and we couldn't do what we do without them.

"This award is a sign of Iliffe's commitment and backing for Stars and we can't thank them enough."

Editor Paul Brackley said: “Ormiston Families Stars carry out a brilliant and much-needed service. We have been pleased to work with the service to raise awareness of what they do, and vital funds.”

We are more than halfway towards our £10,000 target.
