RST are big fans of the work they do at Spinal Research, we are delighted to give financial support via monthly gifts. We also support some of the events the team organise, as well as chatting and generally supporting each other with ideas on how we can move things forward. It’s a great team they have at Spinal Research and their research director, Dr Mark Bacon, is a very inspiring man who has the fight to help people with SCI very much close to his heart.

Celtic Manor 2011
RST were delighted to be invited along to Spinal Research’s 2011 golf day at Celtic Manor. It was a brilliant day and great to see so many people supporting the fight to find a cure for paralysis.
Of course the day was great fun but most importantly it was a brilliant way to raise funds and for people to find out a little more about the exciting work they are undertaking at Spinal Research UK.
Unfortunately the RST team didn’t win, we didn’t even make the top 3! But we’ll be back next year to try again!!
RST’s interview with the Chief Executive of Spinal Research coming soon…
