The Richard Overall Trust

This Trust was set up in 2001 in memory of 20 year old Richard Overall who had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He was an inspiration to everyone who had the privilege of meeting him.

The Trust has helped and will continue to help young disabled persons with financial support in order to enjoy and progress in their chosen sport.

The Trust supports requests from Individuals, Groups, Family and Carers who are British Citizens without regard to Creed, Culture or Race.
