Raising funds for:

The Royal Free Neurological Rehabilitation Centre (NRC) is a district rehabilitation and condition management service based at Edgware Community Hospital. The NRC provides specialist inpatient, outpatient and community services for adults with a neurological condition, including multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury.

The NRC Support Group raises funds to provide additional support to the clients of the NRC. We fund equipment, activities, craft sessions, TVs, wi-fi, computers, etc. In the past we have raised the funds to purchase a Motomed motor-assisted movement therapy trainer allowing clients to exercise their arms or legs no matter what their level of disability.

Our target for this year's walk is to raise at least £5,000 towards the purchase of further equipment and to enable us to continue to support the users of the NRC.

Other Activities:

* Free train rides for children (even grown up children!) *
* Craft Stall * Refreshment stall  * Cake stall * 
* Other stalls/activites possible too *
