Buy a BOSP Star

In 2016, BOSP's star mascot felt it was time to go travelling - to highlight BOSP's work in tackling the chronic social isolation felt by many disabled children and young people.

The idea is to buy a star and take him travelling with you.  You then take photographs of his experiences and post them back to us here at the office. It is a great conversation starter and people cannot help enquiring what it is about.  We can then share your photograph on our website and social media, spreading the word further.

BOSP's Travelling Stars were originally made by kind volunteers at Claire's 'Beautiful Things Craft & Sewing Centre' in Brentwood 01277 811136

We also received support from Brentwood County High.  As part of their Community day, their sewing class made us more of the lovely stars to sell.

BOSP's Travelling Star  - How far can he go?
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.
