The Aspire Awards
Over the last five years we’ve given more than 240 customers Aspire Award grants to support community projects or help pay for education courses, training and equipment. The grants have helped Guinness customers to achieve their dreams and become photographers, reflexologists, hair & beauty therapists, swimming instructors and tree surgeons to name a few. We’ve also backed community projects creating mosaic art projects, turning unused space into vibrant allotments and keeping kids entertained over the summer, helping to build better and brighter communities for everyone.
The awards are judged and granted three times a year and funding is available under four different areas:
