Top individual fundraiser

A SwimTrek weekend break for two people.

Lisa was paralysed in a surfing accident and lived in an accessible Aspire house while her apartment was being adapted.

“When I left the spinal unit I found myself homeless as my new apartment wasn't ready, but Aspire offered me a fully adapted properly close to where I live. The bungalow was great – it's a normal, everyday house, with a bit of thought about the design so I could be totally independent there. Aspire made me feel like my needs were always the main concern.”
