Stars marked the move to the East of England charity with an event at Murray Edwards College in Cambridge, where guests heard from Helen Creamer, the mum of three young children who lost their father to Covid-19 in April 2020.

Their headteacher referred Helen to Stars in September 2020, and they received bereavement counselling both face to face at school and online, during lockdown.

Helen also received guidance from the Stars team on how to support her family and received regular calls from a Stars counsellor.
