Roger Metcalfe, a member of the Friends of INS writes "This is the third Richmond Runfest where I have raised funds for INS by running a half-marathon. The others were in 2018 and 2019; there was no event in 2020 of course! Friends will know, but many others might not, that INS is a registered charity providing a range of vital services that are not available through the NHS. People with a neurological condition such as stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson's disease, and of course their carers, can benefit from the help that INS provides. I became a Friend of INS a few years ago because I recognised the importance of INS as a local charity providing help for people to make a real difference to their lives. The Richmond Runfest will return on 12th September 2021, and I look forward to running to my target of 2 hours, 10 minutes; and to raising much needed funds for INS; please join me and donate through my JustGiving page! Thank you!"

One of our patrons is inspiring others by raising funds for INS. Despite walking difficulties and the effects of Parkinson’s Disease, Sir William Wells is rising to the challenge of completing 3 daily laps of his terrace in Richmond, with the aid of a walker.
Our CEO Sarah Vines and fundraiser Tracey Hilty recently visited Sir William and his family to offer our appreciation for his efforts.
