Director of Publicity
Richard has been appointed as Director of Publicity and has an excellent track record in making a noise! He lives on the south coast near the small market town of New Milton with his wife Teri and two small children Imogen and Luke.
Losing his father Nigel Dawson in 2001 to MND Richard and his family started fund raising and have raised over £30,000 collectively for MND.
Richard and his 2 brothers Michael and Andrew along with family members and friends undertook the challenge of the 3 Peaks in June 2012 raising over £10,000
Having had a taste for mountains Richard returned in 2013 with the BIGMNDRACE that involved Richard’s retired Black London Taxi nicknamed MaNDy and some friends in a top gear style race. Pulling MNDA and MND Scotland together along with multiple MND Branches this event was hailed as one of the first big ones and a real success.
Having met Ian in 2012 Richard was keen to support both Ian and Tony Bray on the Solent Swim and has been proud to be supporting the Kayak support team for the annual Ian Pratt Challenge since.
Richard hangs out on many social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIN and is happy to connect at any time.
