“Having had an inner city upbringing with very few privileges, I moved to this area when I was fourteen and left school at sixteen with no clear direction. I was fortunate to find my way into logistics and with good mentoring in my early days, a very strong work ethic and a lot of determination, I now own and run a successful and strongly branded International company. The decision we made regarding Inspire was based on my own past experiences and a collective passion to help youngsters locally. We feel privileged to be able to be involved in current fundraising events and have committed to assist with future projects over the next two years and hopefully beyond.” - Andy Perrin, Managing Director of Hemisphere Freight Services.
