Shots Heart Aspire

Aldershot Town helped Aspire Defence Services celebrate World Heart Day and raise funds for the British Heart Foundation last week at a special event at the Military Stadium.

Throughout the week, ADSL ran a series of roadshows in association with the BHF to raise funds and awareness of heart health, and Jim Kellermann, Adam McDonnell and George Fowler showed their support by helping turn miles into money on a special exercise bike.

There were also opportunities for the players to test their blood pressure and drive a toy car around a special heart-themed scalextric track. Locations across the Aspire Defence estate hosted the roadshows which form part of an ambitious programme of events designed with the BHF team to reach as many Aspire staff as possible. The events also featured BHF pop-up shops, CPR demonstrations, mini Health MOTs and even cardiovascular workouts.

The Foundation is Aspire’s official 2017 charity, to mirror their long-standing interest in the health and wellbeing of its people and its commitment to the community.

Aspire Defence Services have managed the major facilities management subcontracts at Aldershot and Salisbury Plain garrisons since 2006, including estates management and maintenance, grounds maintenance, stores, security, transport, office services, administration, sport and leisure. ADS also manages the subcontract for catering, retail and living accommodation delivered by Sodexo and the utilities subcontract delivered by MUJV. For further information, visit
