Harry & Edward’s Aspiration Raising Trust has been established to provide opportunities for children and young people that will raise their aspirations and help them strive to be the best they can be in life.
Our charity commemorates our twin boys, Harry and Ed, who sadly died within six weeks of each other in November 2013 and January 2014. They lived life to the full, were happy, loved and were growing into successful young people. We want to capture the spirit with which their lives were lived and inspire other children and young people to believe that they too can achieve success. We will do this by raising funds to support a wide range of individual and group programmes and events that support learning, provide experiences that would otherwise not be available, develop skills, raise awareness and open eyes to a world beyond their current expectations.
Our aim is simply to inspire children and young people to be the best they can be.
WHAT WE DO
We work with schools, other charities, community organisations and anyone who wishes to identify children and young people whose lives could be improved by the support we are able to offer.
We can provide:
1:1 tuition to help pupils at risk of underachieving at school
Funded places at extra-curricular activities
Books and textbooks
Musical instruments and tuition
Funded trips to museums and galleries and other cultural attractions
"To advance the achievement in life of those children and young people who do not always have the advantages that others have and by so doing, raise their expectations and aspirations, helping them find a pathway to successful and happy lives."
