Co-packer with a difference comes up with goods for big race


Aspires in Fincham, who describe themselves as a professional contract packing company with a difference, became a hive of activity in April when they took delivery of the contents for the Bespak Grand East Anglia Run goody bags

Aspires is a day service for people with learning and physical disabilities which offers valuable work experience. Currently 45 people access the service with 25 attending each day, headed up by a staff of 5 and a team of dedicated volunteers. The income they generate from contract work pays for activities and outings, treats and meals for those people attending the day service.

Roger Partridge, Borough Council race director, said: “Aspires have been with us since the beginning in 2006 and we wouldn’t be able to get the goody bags together without them. They do an incredible job every year.”

The goody bags for the run, which took place on 4 May, contained the usual medals and leaflets along with coconut water, pistachio nuts and bath lotion, and Pasta Pots and Mars Bars which were donated by Mars.

Jackie Murphy from Aspires said: “Our service is primarily about providing valuable work experience for our users, enabling them to master new skills and raise their self-esteem by participating in real work. Our quality standards are high, but the work takes place in a fun environment with lots of music and laughter. We rely on the contract work to provide a purpose for our people and to fund activities. In order to provide meaningful work for so many people we are constantly seeking additional contracts, so we are very grateful to the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk – especially Roger Partridge – for entrusting us with the goody bags for the Bespak Grand East Anglia Run event. This is exciting for everyone as we never know what goodies we are getting until they turn up, and then it’s all hands on deck to get the bags stuffed in time for the run.”
