Our Story

inspire* was established in 2012 by Darryl Cooke, one of the founders of law firm, gunnercooke LLP. He wanted to build a legacy that was bigger than a business. A legacy that would last longer than profit or growth.

 

He looked at charities he could support and was amazed to discover that there were over 165,000 of them in the UK alone. How could you choose? Where to start? Yet of these thousands, only a small number were household names.

 

In fact, over 70% of all charitable donations in the UK were given to just the top 1% of these charities.

There are many, many charities operating at the grass roots with almost no funding, no resource and few connections.

Does that make their causes any less noble? No.

Does it make their leaders any less inspiring? Of course not.

 

These charities are operating in our communities, near to our homes and close to our hearts. And we believe that every business has the power to start helping them, today.
