Giving hand a heart to another hand

5 Starâ„¢ Charitable Trust

The 5 Starâ„¢ Charitable Trust has been created to support local charities and organisations across the UK and Ireland who are working to raise funds for a specific cause or initiative within their local area.

At Image, we are delighted to be a part of the 5 Star Charitable Trust, with a donation made for every 5 Star product we sell.

The trustee board led by Chairman Lord Digby Jones meet on a regular basis to consider applications and make the awards to support local people based initiatives.

Their review considers an array of criteria which include:

  • Local cause with a specific target they are aiming to achieve.
  • The ability to apply the 5 Starâ„¢ brand to something tangible to demonstrate the support of the trust (equipment, rooms, buildings, clothing etc.)
  • The ability to support a number of initiatives UK and Ireland through smaller awards
  • The nominated cause does not have to be a registered charity have aims to provide support/care for an initiative in the local community

The trust aims to support local initiatives rather than national charities who receive the support of a broader audience and benefit from large contributions on an annual basis.

The trust has a focus towards people based needs and therefore funds to support religious based or animal based causes are unlikely to be approved.
