A fostering company from Emneth started their 97,000 step walk Friday, finishing their four-day trek through Lynn yesterday.

Starz Fostering Community Interest Company is not a for profit organisation, fostering children between the ages of 4-18, and funding those between the ages of 18-27.

Nicole Starenczak and Leah Whiting both set up the company, with their main focus of helping children find a safe home.

Wanting to raise awareness for the need of more careers, Leah’s husband, Andrew Whiting, planned for the walk across 4 counties, Norfolk being their last.

Andrew is an army officer who has been involved with charity work since the age of 18.

He was wearing a superman outfit, naming himself the Starz Man with a Captain America style shield, hoping that it would “attract attention” from the public.

Leah said: “It’s been really good and we have had a lot of positive responses”.

Since their launch last year, the company has promoted their competitive weekly fostering allowance and additional support for foster carers that they said is a “vital element” of their organisation.
