Aim for the Stars
Starchild is a registered charity set up in memory of the founders adopted brother, Frankie Marsh. Frankie’s parents were both from Uganda. After coming to the UK to study in the 60s, Frankie’s mother reluctantly made the decision to give him up for adoption. Frankie was adopted into Michaela’s family in Glasgow, Scotland at 13 months old, the same age as Michaela. They were raised like twins – one black, one white. Sadly Frankie died in a house fire at the age of 27 years.
Starchild believes that every child deserves to be loved, cared for, clothed, fed and educated.
To do all this we rely on the generous donations of friends and well-wishers and the charitable work of dedicated volunteers to provide love, security, medical care and education for the children. There are a number of ongoing projects and daily hurdles to overcome.
Starchild hopes you are in a position to continue to help with some of these hurdles and challenges by organising fundraising events, private funding programs, leaving a legacy, sponsoring a child, giving in memory of a loved one, inviting the public and private professionals and philanthropists to help and donate to this worthwhile cause.
