Spencer Superstars Charitable Foundation officially launched

The Spencer Superstars Charitable Foundation was officially launched at our Inaugural Spring Ball on the 28th of May, raising a collective £41,617.

Hosted by Gem 106 presenter Jo Russell, over 200 partners and staff members attended the launch ball at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel and Spa. The evening was opened by Nottingham-born Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, followed by an introduction to the Foundation, live auctions, raffles and music from Re-Take That.

The Foundation aims to raise money annually to support the students of Spencer Academies Trust to pursue their passions and live their dreams. With categories including; The Arts, Sports, Entrepreneurship, Science and Technology, Conservation, Wellbeing and Healthy Lifestyle, and Community Projects. Students are able to apply for financial gifts from the Foundation.

‘We have been overwhelmed by the level of support the launch of the Spencer Superstars Charitable Foundation has received. A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to making our inaugural event such an outstanding success! We now look forward to enabling our students to receive the appropriate support towards accomplishing their aspirations.’

Headline Sponsor, BMI Interiors Director Dan Belfield;

“We were delighted to support the launch of the Foundation. As a company, we work very closely with George Spencer Academy each year and get to see a true insight into how the Trust is always investing in areas that make a difference to their children’s education and wellbeing. To know that our support will have helped a future star’s journey makes it very humbling indeed.’

Sponsor Aquinas Education, Craig Anderson, Managing Director;

It was an honour to sponsor the launch of Spencer Superstars Charitable Foundation. The aspirations of the charity are a strong ethos for Aquinas, so naturally, we jumped at the opportunity to not only support this amazing charity but also support their launch.’

In the run-up to the event, all 25 Spencer Academies took part in the first-ever ‘Spencer Superstars Day’ and fundraised through a range of activities collectively raising an amazing £13,750. Thank you to everyone who has supported the launch of the Spencer Superstars Charitable Foundation. We now look ahead to turning our students’ passions and dreams into reality.
