A CHARITY which could be forced to close later this year is pleading for donations to keep it going.

Stars in the Sky helps people with learning difficulties to socialise and interact with other people.

As reported, the Fareham-based charity has seen a cut in funding and will be forced to close in November if there is no further funding.

Project manager Nicole Hamerton said: ‘Since the article in The News, everybody has been ringing up and wants to join.

‘Everyone that’s phoning us up now goes on the holding file.

‘We don’t want to turn anyone away but at the same time we don’t want to promise anything we can’t deliver.’

Nicole added that any companies interested in sponsoring the charity would be investing in a very worthwhile cause.

‘If they were to do that they would be investing in one of the most innovative and unique projects,’ she said.

‘There isn’t a project which caters for the reduction in social interaction.

‘It’s about making friendships. They can’t do that on their own.

‘Even if we got a little bit of funding to help us through the next year that would be great.

‘Stars in the Sky is the future.’

The project also helps people with training to help them get a job.

Anyone interested in sponsoring the charity should call 01329 826423.
