Local company Pure volunteer their time to spruce up Inspire supported by Brewers

29 June 2018

Employees from a local professional recruitment specialist Pure spent their Volunteering Day at Inspire last Friday. They volunteered to give our storage containers a revamp to bring them to life again and add a touch of colour to our sports field!

One of the many ways that we support the local community is by offering everyone the chance to play sport helping to build confidence, social skills, and self-esteem including many free to access activities. We have both indoor sports areas and sports pitches at our base in Ipswich and have two shipping containers used for storage. While these are extremely useful, they looked quite shabby. This made our sports fields a less inspiring place for the children, and for the local people and businesses that hire out our venue with all profits supporting our work.

Each year, Pure’s Ipswich office dedicates a day to volunteering with a local community initiative. With the help of Pure, they have helped us to add a touch of life back into our field right in time for a big event for over 30 Primary schools as before the containers were well used and needed the life brought back to them!

We would like to say a massive thank you to Brewers Decorator Centres and Rust-oleum for donating the paint so that Pure could complete their volunteering day. Another massive thank you to Brewers as they also donated a BBQ for us to use for our programmes and events!

We want to say a big thank you to Pure for choosing us for their volunteering day and we look forward to our relationship continuing!

Paul Sheldrake, Senior Manager at Pure’s Ipswich office, said:

“It was really rewarding to work together and to make the containers look so much better. What may seem like a small thing will make a big difference. Not only will it aesthetically improve the space for the children and young people supported by the charity, it will make Inspire’s venues more attractive to hire out. This will help to raise more funds for this fantastic charity, so it can continue delivering its amazing work and support.”
