Josh Vosper joines Inspire Youth Zone

Chorley's Inspire Youth Zone has appointed Josh Vosper as business and community fundraiser.

Josh, who worked at Chorley FC in a variety of roles over the last decade including commercial manager, is joining the local charity to help raise funds and increase awareness of its work supporting the young people of the town.

Inspire provides a safe and aspirational environment for young people to spend time with friends, enjoy a nutritious hot meal and escape the pressures of normal life to focus on their own development.

The charity provides more than 100 activities each week for all young, and must raise £1.1m per year to operate. The programme relies on the fundraising efforts of the local community and Josh's appointment will focus heavily on working with those local businesses.

He said: "I have lived in Chorley my whole life and I’m hugely proud to be part of our town. I recognise how important it is for our community to support each other and that we are there for our young people."

Karen Hunter, head of fundraising, added: "As a young charity our incredible results and impacts are only sustainable with the support of local businesses and individuals who are passionate about our town. With many brand-new ways to support Inspire Youth Zone, fresh for 2020, we would love to encourage anyone to get in touch and find out more how they can support Chorley’s next generation.”
