This is the second meeting for people to come and helping to plan or take part in the Inspire Festival. To make this happen I do need the support of others.

Share your group’s achievements and successes

The Inspire Festival aims to be a fun and inspiring event that enables people to come together and celebrate, therefore I would love groups and organisations to write a paragraph about what their group/organisation has achieved and how it has benefited people and the community.

This will then be put together as a collective to form a Powerpoint slideshow that will be displayed at the festival. Pictures, poems, and quotes can also be attached.

Please feel free to send this information to me via this facebook thread or by emailing

I am looking forward to hearing all about your groups and I am sure others will too 🙂
