The superb work being done by staff on mental health wards has been recognised with an OBE!

What with the recession and all that, the Palace can’t run to a medal for all 600 of our ward members, so Marion and Buddy are going to pick it up. At last, Buddy the Jewish princess has a chance to wear a tiara.

You might be wondering – what difference does Star Wards actually make to mental health wards? It’s a question we continuously ask ourselves, to make sure that we are having a positive impact.

So, join up, join in and let us know your wonderful ideas – and if you can donate to us or fundraise for us, we would be delighted to hear from you. Thank you for all you do.
