Steven Ho, Star Throwers added, “On behalf of Star Throwers, our biggest thanks to Lord Baker for his generous support. Star Throwers are supporting more people affected by cancer than ever before, empowering patients and their loved ones to make informed choices about cancer treatments and providing complementary therapies to help them cope whilst living with cancer.

The Lord Baker Community Fund aims to support capital costs (for example, equipment or resources) to help deliver community projects, and priority is given to applications where a grant of up to £1,000 will cover the majority of the cost.”
