Charity & Fundraising
Inspired is dedicated to raising money for charity and making a positive difference in our local community.
Whilst we have raised money in the past for a variety of charities such as British Heart Foundation, Finely’s Gift and Comic Relief, we partner with one charity per year and focus our fundraising efforts on achieving a monetary target.
Alan Shearer Foundation
For the past two years we have proudly partnered with The Alan Shearer Foundation as we believe our contribution can make a real difference to people with complex disabilities and acute sensory impairments.
We have set an ambitious target of £35,000 but know our contributions will help The Alan Shearer Centre continue to provide free sensory and specialist leisure activities to people in the North East, as well as offer respite breaks for profoundly disabled children and adults.
So far, through dress down days, bake offs, golf days and the great north run we have raised a huge £32,700!
The Dragonfly Cancer Trust
We were approached this year by The Dragonfly Cancer Trust a local charity whose headquarters have recently moved from Hexham to Newcastle. Dragonfly Cancer Trust makes a very real and positive difference to the lives of young cancer patients with limited time.
They passionately believe in the importance of happy memories and work tirelessly to make them happen for young people and their families.”
Inspired could not pass up the opportunity to help raise money for a charity that so selflessly undertakes heart-breaking work bringing happiness to young people in the final stages of cancer. We were able to organise a quiz night, bingo game and sweep stake to raise £1340 for this great cause.
