Talking About Project Management to the Ugandan Young Leaders

On a visit to Uganda last week, Rob Newman (the Tag Rugby Trust Treasurer) had a heart warming chat with the Uganda young leaders about project management. As part of our fundraising, we are creating a project management eLearning course and raising money for tablets to enhance the young leaders knowledge skill set for the future. We are proud to be a part of creating a future for these bright young people

APM Project Challenge Update

As many of you will be aware Aspire Europe have entered a team into this years APM Project Challenge and have chosen to raise money and provide project management eLearning to the Tag Rugby Trust. A quick update on our progress so far!

Combining our on-line and offline donations we have now raised around £1150 which is amazing and we would like to thank everyone who has donated for their generosity and anyone who would like to donate please follow the link below to our JustGiving fundraising page.

Sam and Alice are due to do their 15,000ft sky dive (highest possible jump without oxygen) in just 38 days and have funded this completely out of their own pockets, therefore any sponsorship for them would also be welcomed and greatly appreciated.

The team start our public fundraising this Friday night at the Bristol Rugby vs Ealing Trailfinders game at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol, where we will be raising awareness, collecting funds and selling prize draw tickets. We will provide an update to how we got on next week.

Finally we have been contacting many different organisations from local rugby clubs to international rugby to help us with our cause, and this week we received a lovely email from England rugby commending us on the work we are doing and commenting “What a superb project you are involved in” (England Rugby Union Social Responsibility Manager). This was so exciting to receive praise from someone so prominent in England Rugby.

For any further information or to make a donation please visit https://www.justgiving.com/Aspire-Europe and we hope to provide more exciting updates soon.

Aspire Europe is fundraising for the Tag Rugby Trust

Aspire Europe have entered a team into this year’s APM (South West and West of England) Project Challenge.

The team consists of Sam, Tom, Alice and Ellie. We are raising money for the Tag Rugby Trust, TRT is a skills training charity that uses tag rugby as a training tool to support and enhance its training syllabus. TRT delivers a hands on syllabus in a wide varietProject Challenge Photoy of fields including rugby coaching, media & journalism, first aid, small business related skills and many others. The TRT training is ideal for the young leaders that are part of the bursary programme. As well as training, TRT sets up Community Clubs (mini rugby clubs) for the trainees to continue their development in a practical manner by managing and growing their own clubs. The idea is that TRT offers a hands on vehicle for the young leaders and trainees to practice their training.

Team Aspire are planning to provide the TRT with a variety of different support mechanisms. Firstly Aspire Europe will create a range of training products that can be used across Africa to help with skills training in the field of project management which is not currently part of the coaching syllabus. As well as this Aspire Europe will provide funds, resources and equipment to help TRT. This will be achieved by numerous fund raising activities and provisions from the local area such as a sponsored skydive being done by two of the team members, Alice and Sam. We will also be raffling off a wide selection of prizes donated by a range of organisations both locally and nationwide and fundraising at a six nations game in Cardiff. Finally we are offering our suppliers and clients an opportunity to gain Aspire products such as eLearning and podcasts for donating a certain amount of our cause.
