Paul Roberts I'll be plunging my bare, tender feet onto hot coals on a chilly Saturday evening for Aspire...

And here's 'the why'. My charity, Aspire, transforms over 2,000 lives every year that would otherwise be affected by homelessness, addiction, loneliness, offending and low self-esteem. My colleagues are the most inspiring, dedicated people and what they do, really works; they prevent the vulnerable from becoming homeless; support ex-offenders to boost their employment prospects as they leave the prison gate; enable elderly people to live independent lives and stay in their homes with supported transport; and empower people to set up their own business, start that course, gain that qualification or move into that new house. Together they're amazing and long may it continue!

Donating through the Aspire platform is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with us - we'll never sell them on or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, your money goes directly to Aspire.

So please, dig deep and I'll put my feet to the fire!

Yours

Paul Paul Roberts
