We’re a giving bunch over here at Inspired and are committed to helping great causes. So, every year we choose a charity partner, lending a hand to one of the inspiring charitable organisations in the North East.

This year our charity partner is the Alan Shearer Foundation. The charity was set up to support Newcastle’s Alan Shearer Centre, which provides specialist disability, respite, residential and social care for people with complex disabilities.

We’re extremely proud to say we’ve reached almost £10,000, and counting. That’s right, £10k of our original £15k target for the year. Through lots of different fundraising efforts by the team, including bake sales, dress down days and 10k runs, we think we’re doing canny well!

But we also have big plans to help us achieve the rest of our fundraising goal. A team of runners from Inspired will be participating in the Great North Run on 11th September. Let’s reach that £15k goal… and maybe even raise a bit more!

Since the launch of the Alan Shearer Foundation in 2012, almost £2 million has been raised. The money goes directly to supporting vulnerable members of the community. Find full details of all their great work here.

We know that our contribution can help to make a difference to people with complex disabilities and acute sensory impairments. A huge thank you must go to all of the Inspired team for their efforts towards this great cause.
