About the charity.
Inspiration for Life is a registered charity. Charity number in England and Wales: 1158518
To understand why Inspiration for Life has been set up, and what it aims to do, you’ll need to read Tim’s Story. This is Tim’s vision, and all those of us involved with the charity are working to make it a reality.
What will we do? There will be a range of activities aiming to promote lifelong learning, and encourage the public understanding of science – publications, lectures and other events. We’ll work within and beyond the University, linking up with schools and other organisations who share these goals.
We’ll encourage students in Physics & Astronomy through the award of prizes each year for those who through their achievements—academic and otherwise—have provided inspiration for others. Working with the Snowdon Trust, we’ll help to overcome the barriers which face students with disabilities by providing grants to support their studies.
The funds we raise through these activities will have to cover minimal necessary costs (printing, venue hire, etc) but then will be channelled to organisations who can fulfil other aspects of the vision—particularly research into the treatment of cancer, and support for cancer patients. We’ll be working in partnership with Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, and other local charities, such as Rotherham Hospice and Impact Young Heroes.
Tim’s been an inspiration to so many people. Now, he’s facing this huge challenge, with his usual generosity and humour. He’s using what’s happened to empower him to do the things that are important to him, and through Inspiration for Life we, and you, can be part of that.
Inspiration for Life is very new, and it will need your support to grow and to achieve Tim’s vision. You can support us not only through donations but by participating in our projects, contributing your ideas and enthusiasm, spreading the word.
