Ruth Roberts' Marathon for the Inspiration Fund

Ruth Roberts, Vice Principal of Lodge Park Academy in Corby, is embarking on her fourth marathon in aid of the Inspiration Fund.

Ruth is training hard ahead of the the Milton Keynes Marathon, 3rd May 2021, and needs your help to fundraise for the Inspiration Fund which provides a life-changing enrichment programme to students at Lodge Park Academy and the other 33 academies part of the Trust.

Thank you for your support - Good Luck Ruth!

The Inspiration Fund

Our Trust’s Inspiration Fund creates life-changing experiences for over 13,000 young people in our schools. Our award-winning programme helps our students to develop their passions and discover their talents through access to the very best in sports, music, culture and outward-bound activities.

Our enrichment programme is at the heart of our organisation and encourages students to become confident, well-rounded young people who will be valued members of society. We are proud to be able to say that ours is the only programme of its kind in the state sector and gives our students access to the kinds of life-changing experiences normally only available at independent fee-paying schools.

How you can make a difference

To be able to offer these incredible experiences, we need to fundraise. This because the experiences and activities we offer go beyond the activities supported by state-funded grants.

Our enrichment programmes are only possible because of the Inspiration Fund and the generosity of our donors – from organisations to school communities and individuals.
