We're still collecting donations

On the 18th October 2022 we'd raised £1,070 with 39 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Why are we raising money?

This winter is going to be a hard one for us all, but none more so than for our older people. As energy prices and food prices sky rocket, older people on fixed incomes will have to make difficult choices in order to keep themselves healthy and warm over the winter. Older people are at increased risk of hypothermia when the room temperature drops below 16 C.
As costs continue to increase we want to help older people avoid the difficult decisions that would otherwise mean they are left without heating or food this winter and our Warm Spaces project would allow us to reduce the living costs for many older people by giving them a warm, safe environment with food options over winter.

What will we do with the raised money? 

The Inspired Taskforce already provides activity sessions on 3 days a week and we would like to expand this to 5, so that every weekday throughout the months of winter, there is an option to come and sit in a Warm Room and drink a Hot Brew with friendly companions.
We will have many options of activity on the day, from Sewing, Knitting, board games, arts & crafts and much more - Similar to our already currently running Happy Mondays Social Group.

The Inspired Taskforce's mission is to make the world a better place for older people - starting with our own backyard in Levenshulme and Gorton.
