Charity Fundraising Activities

Banquet ArchivesStarbase 24 are committed to working with charities for the good of the community. As well as our flagship event, the Starbase 24 Starfleet/Klingon Banquet, which is featured on its own page on this site, we take part in several other events.


We are now able to accept online donations. Please note that we remain a completely non-profit making group. All funds raised are divided between the charities we support - we give approximately two thirds to Marie Curie and the rest to other charities including WYAIN and Hedgehog Care. We retain nothing for ourselves.

So how much have we raised for charities?

January 2020

Starbase 24 donated 200 Australian dollars (approx 119) to two different charities working in Australia.  

WIRESWhile we primarily fundraise for our three UK charities, we have always reserved the right to offer support and assistance to other charities and good causes on an ad-hoc basis, depending upon need at the time. We are sure that all will agree that Australia needs help and support from the international community at this time.

M's Skydive, November 2017

The lovely 'M', aka Marie Smith, did a skydive to raise money for cancer. For those who don't know, 'M' is a cancer survivor and continues her fight against the disease.

"I was diagnosed with stomach cancer three and half years ago now. Chemo, stomach removed and further chemo I'm still here fighting, despite being given a 15% chance of surviving five years.

I'm over half way through the years I was given but I'm not letting them stop me. With the help of my loving partner I've been working on my bucket list and a parachute jump has always been up there ever since I saw my Dad do his first jump.

So when the Cancer Society Canterbury - West Coast Division put up about their Jump for Cancer 2017, I knew this was a cause I had to support."

M raised a total of $1506.87 (NZ dollars).

Well done, M!
