Aspire in the local Community

Being involved with the community is very important to us.

Here at Aspire To Move we feel that it is very important to be involved with the local community and support local businesses, events and charities.

We strive to be involved within the local community so if you have a local event or charity please pick up the phone as we would love to be involved! 

Our Community Involvement

What an Amazing Year!

We had pleasure off sponsoring the local Scouts firework event for the beginning of November. As a business we purchased over £100 worth of groceries and items that the Bath Foodbank needed for those in need. We also displayed a collection point in our office for any donations for us to deliver the beginning of December. With our donation and the many items dropped into our office we very much enjoyed delivering these items. Bath Foodbank were over the moon and with the pandemic know this will certainly assist in an already stretched need.

Charity Cycle Ride

What a fantastic event!  A big thank you to everyone who donated and showed their support. As part of our donation, Aspire To Move pledged to donate a pound for each mile cycled, the team cycled at a great speed for 12 hours and clocked up a cracking 262 miles in total!  We raised a grand total of £2,380.85 for the amazing RUH Forever Friends Appeal charity.

Halloween, Bonfire and School Fundraiser

Continuing on from the first half of 2020 we kept it going and from August right the way through to December we helped in our local community. We started with a pumpkin craving competition, we sponsored the Bathesaston fireworks and finished by donating a huge hamper to a local school to help raise money through a Christmas raffle.

Easter Community Fun

We recognize that lockdown was proving hard for those home schooling and keeping the kids busy. One of the directors here at Aspire to move found herself thrown into being a school teacher whilst juggling working from home like many more. We decided to put out a virtual coloring competition to all the children for a bit a fun. This was a huge success with many creative entries. We were delighted to deliver the goodies to our lucky winners.

Larkhall Lockdown – Photography Competition

This event takes place every year – – and is well known in the area especially the famous soap box race.  We were over the moon that they decided to run the event virtually and we immediately asked to be involved.  We promoted the event and launched a home and garden photography competition. We loved seeing all the photographs coming in and it was hard to choose a winner.  However, East of Bath took the prize and used the prize money to buy all local produce to support those local businesses.  We are very much looking forward to being involved next year and watch this space as an Aspire soap box might be making an appearance.

Covid-19 – Support in the Community

Aspire To Move believe that in times of trouble if we stay together as one we can accomplish more. The news of the lockdown and Covid-19 was a huge surprise to all of us. We quickly realized that many in our community including our elderly neighbour would require assistance and needed to observe the 12 week lockdown. Due to our location we could also see that the local chemist had a surging demand and struggling to cope.

We took it on ourselves and the other local businesses to create our facebook group @Careincamden. Designed to help those that do not have anyone to get shopping, prescriptions and errands whilst self isolating. This has been a great success and we have loved getting to know some of the locals whilst assisting.
