Over the years, Inspiration for Life has raised thousands of pounds for research into the treatment of cancer as well as toward supporting cancer patients through a selection of charities including Impact.
The 24 Hour Inspire is Inspiration for Life’s flagship fundraising event. Put simply, it’s a 24-hour lecture marathon, featuring back-to-back talks, mainly half an hour in length, on life, the universe and everything, all accessible to a non-specialist audience. It raises funds through the sale of tickets and refreshments, and through general donations.
The event is dedicated to Tim Richardson, who founded Inspiration for Life, and to Victoria Henshaw, a colleague from Urban Studies who died in 2014.
“The event is not a memorial. It’s a celebration of everything Tim believed in – of learning and teaching, of sharing knowledge and enthusiasm, of inspiration.”
