Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This is the Just Giving page set up in memory of Alastair Yates.
Alastair was the Chair of ADHD Richmond and Kingston and passed away suddenly on 26th July 2018.
ADHD Richmond & Kingston is a voluntary support group for parents and carers of children and young people with the neuro-developmental condition – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and its comorbidities.
ADHD affects the neurotransmitters’ ability to transfer messages though the frontal lobes of the brain causing problems such as poor attention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. It is estimated that about 5% of children have ADHD. Unfortunately, this condition is much misunderstood.
ADHD Richmond and Kingston offers free support and information to parents and carers and helps to raise awareness of this condition. Alastair worked tirelessly for the group since joining in 2011 bringing with him exceptional communication skills from his career in broadcasting. He was fully engaged in activities such as training teachers from local schools to gain a greater understanding of ADHD, organising daytime and evening monthly talks for parents/carers and professionals, arranging social events and activities for the children and young people, managing a comprehensive website and the group’s social media and producing an ADHD Handbook.
ADHD Richmond and Kingston is run entirely by volunteers and donations to date have been spent on printing our Handbooks, leaflets, banners, and on Audio Visual equipment for use in the seminars.
Alastair’s family has kindly requested donations in Alastair’s memory to be made to ADHD Richmond and Kingston so that parents and carers can continue to be provided with the highest quality provision.
Thank you so much for visiting this page and for your support.
