What 2019 holds for ASPiRES



2019 for us is all about change, growth and new beginnings. We are making changes to our staff structure, trying to gain more clients and now we are looking to change how we raise our funding money for our charity, Friends of ASPiRES.

New Clients

ASPiRES are always grateful to welcome new clients to our workload. For us to turn our hand to pretty much anything helps us bring variety of work to our service users and keeps them engaged.


In 2018 we have been lucky to work with a London company called Tinker Tailor. They were in need of relabeling their amazing luxury decorations ready for the Christmas rush this winter.

Looking forward to 2019 we would love to branch out into other sectors of business! We are looking at taking on picking and packing work. In working with Tinker Taylor we realised that this is a line of work we could manage and the service users really enjoyed.

We are still in the planning stages, but if you know of anyone looking for a small business to help them we would be very interested in getting in touch to talk further.

If you are interested in working with us or know someone who would be please get in touch via Email or call the office on 01366 347721

Fundraising

We have already introduced a new way of donating for free when you order online. Easyfundrasing is a company who work with retailers such as Amazon, Ebay, Argos etc and with each purchase made through their websites a percentage will be given to the charity of your choice.


If you would like to find out more please click here to read our blog post on how to use the website or the app.

This method of donating is so helpful and doesn't cost you any extra exspence! Keep a look out on our Facebook page as we post offers that we think our followers might enjoy.

Volunteering

We have lots of ideas for future fundraising events but are struggling to bring them to life due to not enough hours in the working day! Ideally we would like volunteers to work with us in all aspects of putting an event together.

We know coming into ASPiRES to volunteer isn't a viable option for all due to work and busy lives, but helping with events can be done when ever you have the time and from home.


Ideally, we would like to hold a minimum of 3 fundraising events a year. At the moment we have 2 annual events planned, our sponsored walk in the spring and wreath making over the Christmas period. We are looking to grow both of these events in the future.

Hopefully with our walks we would like to have more people join the staff and getting their own sponsors.


With our wreath making we would like to get to a place where we would be able to hold more than evening through December.

If you feel that you would like to help us please fill out our online application form and we will get back to you or call the office on 01366 347721.

As always, thank you for your on going support.
