Hi my name is Nick Townsend, those in the gaming community know me as Sgt-Rico88 and I’m a broadcaster on Twitch. I wanted to help raise awareness for FND Hope UK as my partner’s father was diagnosed with FND a few years ago. I wasn’t with my partner at the time but I heard just how hard it was when his world fell apart and how crucial a part FND Hope UK played in terms of support in those early years. So I couldn’t think of a better cause to try to raise some money for. I thought to myself what can I do that anyone could do, that was also extraordinary, I was talking to some friends online and they suggested a 24 hours stream to raise funds and awareness and I thought it was a great way to do it. the support from FND Hope UK was great with plenty of information given to me and extra help advertising my event. It was great fun and can’t wait for my next challenge.
Nick, on behalf of FND Hope UK thank you so much for your help and support, we can’t wait to see what your next challenge will be.
