Last week Inspire took part in Wear a Hat Day to sponsor Brain Tumour Research. The charity recieves less than 1% of national cancer research spending in the UK, yet more people under 40 die from a brain tumour than any other form of cancer.
The charity was chosen due to Inspire’s founding history. When Managing Director Warren Munson decided to take the steps to set up Inspire Professional Services, he had a great deal of support from a gentleman called Angus Ross who helped him find the determination and resolution to establish Inspire. Tragically, in 2013 Angus was diagnosed with a brain tumour. He faced his battle against cancer with characteristic determination, humour and grade but unfortunately passed away at the end of 2013.
On Friday 27th March the Inspire team supported the charity’s “Wear a Hat Day.” All employees wore various items from pirate hats and easter bonnets to vespa helmets! Furthermore they hosted the first Great Inspire Bake Off, with treats judged on taste, appearance and imagination. In total the day raised over £137 for the charity.
Following this first event five Inspire employees are taking part in the Bournemouth East Cliff, Rotary Quarter Marathon. Ruth Bignell, Amelia Price, Rachel Parker, Jon Huggins & Alex Bayne are battling through this difficult course on Saturday 4th April!
So far Inspire have achieved 65% of their goal to raise £350 for the charity. Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Simply head to the Just Giving Page or text INSP71 then the amount you’d like to donate to 70070.
