SW Surrey Branch were sad to hear of the death on the 29th May of Roy Redford. Having started long-distance running at the age of 60, he ran 52 Marathons in all, including the events in London, New York and Berlin. Many of these were to raise funds for our branch of the MND Association, and over the years, the funds raised were more than £50000.
His achievements were recognised by his being selected as a sitter for a portrait by artist Patrick Joyce, who is living with MND. The branch was represented at Roy’s funeral, and we offered his family our condolences and appreciation for all his efforts for the MND cause.
