We are delighted to announce that this year's Sports Quiz Dinner in London raised £105,000 to support people with Spinal Cord Injury.  The evening was hosted by Aspire's President John Inverdale and featured the famous sports quiz, with questions set by Rob Nothman.  Congratulations to the winning team, Team Headingley! 

The speaker was Grace Spence Green, who spoke about how she sustained a spinal cord injury whilst training to be doctor, how an Aspire Independent Living Advisor told her how it would be possible for her to not just survive, but thrive and how through setting up an Aspire Your Fund she has been able to raise money to purchase essential equipment to help her rehabilitation and independence.
