We support people with Spinal Cord Injury to help them live full, independent lives

Charity Registration No. 1075317


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My name is Umer, I am a year 9 student at Judgemeadow Community College. Throughout the week I do a lot of different activities including swimming for a local club – Leicester Neptune Swimming Club. Earlier in the year we decided to challenge ourselves by taking part in a relay Channel swim.

As a career, I would like to be involved in sports, either coaching or go into physiotherapy. This links in well with our charity Aspire.

A little bit about Aspire and spinal cord injury;

New data suggests that the number of people who are paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury each year is around 2,500 per year which is ‘every four hours, it can happen to anyone at any time and no one is prepared for how it will change their life.

Aspire exists because there is currently no cure. We provide practical help to people who have been paralysed by spinal cord injuries, helping them move from injury to independence. 

Our services include: Aspire Grants, Aspire Housing, Independent Living, Welfare Benefits Advice, Assistive Technology, Campaigning and Research”.

Some real life stories can be found on the following link;
