Inspiring: Accountancy firm launches ’15 for 15′ year-long charity drive to mark birthday

By Andrew Diprose, editor

Dorset accountancy firm Inspire is launching a ‘15 for 15’ year-long charity campaign in aid of Julia’s House Children’s Hospice to recognise 15 years in business.

As long-term supporters of the charity – and with Inspire Founder Warren Munson as its Chairman – the campaign will see the Inspire team undergo 15 charitable events and activities throughout the year all linked to the theme ‘15’.

All money raised will be donated to Julia’s House which Inspire has supported from the beginning.

The accountancy firm has worked with local businesses and organisations to create challenges in and among the community.

They include sleeping rough for the night, 15 hours of volunteering, giving 15 pints of blood, and 15 days plastic-free.

Martin Edwards, Chief Executive Officer of Julia’s House, said: “Inspire and Julia’s House have grown and developed in similar ways since we were each founded, overcoming similar challenges and meeting new needs.

“The Inspire team has helped us along the way, and their contribution has made a significant difference to the support we provide children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

“Inspire’s ’15 for 15’ campaign is yet another innovative and fun way of raising more funds, and everyone at Julia’s House wishes them lots of luck.”

Last year Inspire raised £28,000 for Julia’s House through charitable events and challenges, including the Entrepreneurs’ Dinner with guest speaker, Eddie Howe, and a ‘Micro Adventure’ to climb Snowdon, in which 18 members of the Inspire team climbed the 1,085m mountain in the dead of night.
