Aspire Ryde


Aspire is your project; together we can make it better and help serve the whole community. Lets work together to:

  • Improve our spaces and facilities available for hire for community activity
  • Run more projects which help meet local needs
  • Provide a place where people can belong to a real community
  • Restore the building which is such a vital part of Ryde’s heritage and townscape

Can you spare some time or money to help make Aspire fantastic and touch people’s lives? Here’s how you can help:

1. Become a Friend of Aspire

Friends of Aspire provide regular financial support for the charity’s work. You can give as much or as little as you can afford; even small donations each month quickly add up when more people join. Regular donations help us plan ahead knowing how much is coming in.

We really need more people to join us as Friends of Aspire to enable us to move forward with making Aspire a long-term success at the heart of the Ryde community. It’s really easy to set up a direct debit, you can do it all online now, you just need your account number and sort code.

2. Make a one-off donation

If you can’t commit to giving each month you can still help support Aspire with a one-off donation. We can accept donations online by credit card, debit card or paypal.

3. Leave a legacy

If you would like to leave a gift to Aspire in your will please talk to us about how to do this, or discuss it with your solicitor. Your donation will leave a lasting legacy, supporting continued community use of the building and preserving a key heritage asset for the town.

4. Volunteer with Aspire

Aspire has quickly become a key part of life in Ryde thanks largely to the support of lots of people giving their time for free. From gardening to roof repairs, admin support to managing events, if you have some free time there is probably a way you can help. Drop in or get in touch if you’d like to help out.
