Here at the Star Asset Finance Group, we enjoy giving back to our local communities including working with our employees and partners to create positive change. Take a look at some of the charity projects we have taken part in to date.


Credo Canaryball Rally 2019

In 2019 Credo created the Credo Canaryball Rally. The event was held in Norwich and the seventeen cars that took part were waved off by the legendary Norwich City Football Club player Jeremy Goss. The winners of the rally were UPukki and £75,000 was successfully raised.


National Three Peaks Challenge 2021

Jack and Oliver from our Credo team put themselves through this gruelling climbing event and raised £1300. The boys climbed the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales. They completed the challenge along with 12 others in 30 hours. We are very proud of what Jack and Oliver achieved and how much they managed to raise. 


Simon Gray Invitational Golf Day 2021

Their beliefs include driving inclusion for those with disabilities boosting health and wellbeing and supporting disadvantaged people to raise their aspirations.

In total, this fantastic event raised £70,000.
