5 Star Charitable Trust

5 star charitable trust for office supplies

5 star charitable trust for office supplies

We are thrilled to be part of the new initiative the 5 Star Charitable Trust which supports local communities and charities throughout the UK and Ireland.

This trust is funded by the sale of the 5 Star™ Office Supplies branded products and then donated to nominated local community charities.
By doing this our customers can donate money to local charities whilst purchasing their 5 Star™ Office Supplies which has a range of over 1400 products across the majority of our category ranges.

The 5 Star™ Chaitable Trust is a registered charity (number 1151151). The appointed board of trustees decide independently exactly which charities will benefit from the fund and how much each beneficiary will receive.
Beneficiaries of the trust will be registered local charities across the UK and Ireland. These will be selected annually from nominations from our customers, partners and any direct nominations from registered charities themselves.

If you would like to nominate a charity please visit or website at www.officestar-group.co.uk/5-star-charitable-trust

We hope that together we can support our local communities and improve the lives of those that need it.

I dont want to go all romantic on you all, but the beauty of the Forest of Dean never ceases to amaze me!

I went for a walk down to Lydney docks yesterday evening with a friend. The sun was shining, which always helps, but even in the depths of winter its a wonderful place.

Anyway we were sat chatting on a bench by the side of the River Severn, just chewing the cud like you do enjoying the stillness. We heard a flock of geese noisely honking as they flew in from our right. There must have been about forty I suppose and all flying single file in a straight line. I thought they were coming down to land on the water as it looked like their little legs were running but the funny thing was they just continued up the length of the river as far as we could see, running about 30cm above the top of the water. A most amusing sight.

Now if I had one of these new fan dangled phones (rather than my trusty old £30 Nokia), I could have taken a photo for you, but thats another story! So Ive borrowed a photo for those of you who havent seen Lydney docks before.

Im off now back to the world of Office Stationery! TTFN :)
