ONE million stars to end violence will be proudly displayed at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, and at least 500 of those will be from Tamworth.

Tamworth Parkinsons Support Group crafted the ribbon stars for the cause, which Ann Crosby said were symbols of light, courage and solidarity against all forms of violence.

Mrs Crobsy said making the stars gave those in the group a little confidence boost.

“A lot of them have very shaky hands, so they felt good about themselves being able to complete one because it’s not easy to do,” she said. The group has already sent their stars to Queensland, but Inspirations Cafe owner Leonie Bell is happy to teach anyone who wants to learn how to make the stars.
