Fundraising marathon in memory of colleagues

banner_logoThe 24 Hour Inspire is returning for another marathon series of lectures in memory of two inspirational colleagues.

Between 5pm and on Thursday 16 April and 5pm the following day, there will be non-stop talks from dozens of lecturers in the Hicks Building, helping to raise money for worthy causes.

Talks will include ‘An insider’s guide to Wolf Hall’, ‘3,000 years of condoms’, ‘What bad novels can tell us about dialect’ and ‘God, what a brat!’

The 24 Hour Inspire was first held in 2013 in memory of Dr Tim Richardson from Physics and Astronomy, who passed away that year. A charity, Inspiration For Life, had been set up by Tim when he was diagnosed with cancer.

This year’s event will be held in memory of Tim, as well as Victoria Henshaw from Town and Regional Planning, who passed away last year.

Tickets will be available on the door for £2, or £7 including a programme, and all funds raised will go to Rotherham Hospice and Impact Young Heroes.

As well as the lectures, there will be refreshments and a cake sale plus live music. For the full programme, visit the Inspiration For Life website.
