These are very strange times. Back in February, when we announced we would have to postpone the 24 Hour Inspire due to industrial action, we could not have imagined that a few weeks later, all University teaching would be ‘virtual’, buildings closed, public gatherings banned, and all of us required to stay at home. All … More Inspiration in Uncertain Times – supporting living, giving and learning
The 24 Hour Inspire 2020 was due to take place on 12-13 March (5 pm to 5 pm) in The Diamond building at the University of Sheffield. However, this date would have conflicted with industrial action by the UCU, which involves teaching, research and many administrative staff.

This year’s Endcliffe Park 10k (6 October 2019) is the tenth event – the first one was held on 10 October 2010, hence the name! Tim’s Team got involved in 2012, after Tim Richardson was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and we’ve fielded a team every year since. This year, we’re dedicating our running, and our … More Tim’s Team 2019 – this one’s for Jo
That’s our mission, at it’s simplest. We can’t do those things ourselves, but we can raise funds to support the organisations that can. That means charities such as Weston Park Cancer Hospital, which not only provide treatment for cancer patients (and support for them and their families) but conduct clinical research which offers hope for … More Fighting cancer, and supporting people with cancer
All of us at Inspiration for Life would like to wish all of you the very best at Christmas, and the very best for 2019. We are a small charity, and everything we’ve achieved – all of the funds raised for Weston Park Cancer Charity, Impact Living, Rotherham Hospice, Teenage Cancer Trust and Snowdon Trust … More Season’s greetings
was a smaller group than usual – mainly because the Endcliffe Park 10k is so popular these days that places sold out very shortly after they were made available, and quite a few of our regulars missed out. We’ll have to be quicker off the mark next year! We also had a few people out … More Tim’s Team 2018…
All of us at Inspiration for Life are very proud of Tim’s diary, For When I’m Sleeping.
