Support for Strictly couple to win
Our first dancing pair have already been backed to win thanks to the MD of Ashe Converting - John Godbold. Our hotly tipped couple Jennifer and John are the first couple to be supported by a local company to the tune of £100 to win! The money the couple raise will via Inspire Suffolk go to help more of Suffolk's young people find a brighter, more confident and happier future. Jennifer is one of our semi-professional dancers and she's been practising hard with John our volunteer and both are hoping to be the ones to raise the glittering Strictly Charity trophy at the Grand Finale on Friday 2nd May here at Inspire Suffolk's headquarters in Lindbergh Road in Ipswich. Our grateful thanks to them for giving up their time to help us raise money for our charity but also too to John Godbold of Ashe Converting for his generous donation. All supporters will join us on the night of the Grand Finale and have their pictures taken with the couple they are supporting along with a mention of their company when the couple take to the dance floor in front of our panel of esteemed judges. If you or your company would also like to sponsor one of our couples for our Strictly Charity fundraising dance competition you need to email jo-annb@inspiresuffolk for more details. Follow Jennifer and John's progress via our Facebook page along with the rest of our Strictly Charity couples. You can also show your support to each of the dancers via the special JustGiving page set up, if you wish you can support them with whatever amount you can afford and know that any money raised will be used to brighten the futures of local young people who have lost their way.

Overcoming fears by working as a Team
Our latest Team recruits - Team 20 completed the residential element of their course with some surprising results. Our Team programmes run to develop the lives of unemployed 16-25 year olds living in Ipswich, Haverhill and the Lowestoft areas. This valuable programme, run in conjunction with the Princes Trust, supports those taking part and helps them to make the positive decisions needed to improve their life conditions and move forward plus it gives them the courage and skills to strike out for new opportunities.
Part of the course which runs over 12 weeks is a residential week and for one of our recruits its helped them overcome a life long fear. Andy Crump who's in charge of the Team programme for Inspire Suffolk tells us "One student on this most recent course had to overcome a fear of water on the ropes course. This student with support of Claire Hudson (Outdoor activities manager) completed various elements of the course before entering the muddy water and going right underneath and successfully managed to put their previous fears behind them."Read more...
