Giving back to our communities.

Aspirare is driven by helping people get jobs predominately in the Lanarkshire area. However Lanarkshire regeneration is a passionate topic to both directors, Martin McCrum and Giles Plenderleith. In the spirit of regeneration and progression, Aspirare believe we must support the people who support us.

One of Aspirare's board directors Martin McCrum is also an active board member of Spirit Aid - a Scottish humanitarian organisation supporting local communities. Aspirare wholeheartedly support Spirit Aid for a few different reasons. Spirit Aid is a normal charity supporting normal peoplewith every day issues no matter how big or small. they are a true charity with very low operational costs meaning every pound that is donated stretches very far. Each Christmas, Martin McCrum and Spirit Aid deliver food hampers to Craigneuk Community Council as well as other Christmas gifts.

"Lucky St Thomas Primary kids enjoyed a trip to Paradise - thanks to Craigneuk Community Council and Celtic Football Club. Eight lucky pupils experienced the thrill of Celtic Park when they attended the Hoops recent league match with St Johnstone. The footabll-daft kids were gifted the tickets by Celtic FC Foundation and Martin McCrum, and were accompanied by Community Council Secretary Margaret Ann Murray to watch the football and enjoy the amazing parkhead light show. Margaret Ann said: 'We would like to thank everyone who helped make this a memorable experience for the children. They were amazing and are a credit to their families and the school'. 'A very special thank you to Martin McCrum who made this all happen, Spiritaid for the very generous donation for hot food on a very cold evening, Ann and Neil Murray for buying hats and gloves for the children and Adam McElroy Minibus hire for taking them safely to and from the match'. 'Thank you also to the community council members for paying for the minibus. And the 2-0 win just finished off the evening perfectly!".

Charity hampers help spread festive cheer.

Spirit Aid donated food hampers, selection boxes, toys and toiletries for people in the community.

Craigneuk felt the Christmas spirit when people pulled together to distribute hampers and gifts for families and their children. Spirit Aid, a Scottish humanitarian relief organisation that was founded in 2001 by their head of operations David Hayman and work across the world to reach children in need, donated food hampers, selection boxes, toys and toiletries for people in the community. these items were distributed throughout the area by Craigneuk Community Council, who also received donations of new toys and clothes from members of St Patricks and St Thomas' churches from the Angel gift Tree. These items helped 29 families and 61 children by providing them with food and gifts for the festive season that they might otherwise not have had. Craigneuk Community Council secretary Margaret Ann Murray was delighted to be able to help and touched by the generosity shown by the people who took the time to donate items. She said "the group would like to say a massive thank you to the community of St Patrick's and St Thomas' and Patrick Rolink and Martin McCrum of Spirit Aid for the very generous donations". she also explained what a difference it made to the lives of the people who had received the hampers and how it helped make what could have been a very difficult time a little easier. Margaret Ann added "The people in receipt of these gifts were overwhelmed by the generosity and the kindness of people - people who have made this Christmas more bearable for them. No individual needs thanked as this was a combined effort by everyone, and once again our communities all pulled together and helped to make a better Christmas for a lot of families".
