FRIENDS and colleagues of a lecturer who died from cancer have held 24 consecutive lectures to raise money for the charity he supported.

The ‘24 Hour Inspire’ started in the Hicks Building at Sheffield University at 5pm – and ran non-stop until 5pm the following day.

The event was held to raise money for Inspiration for Life, the charity supported by Tim Richardson, who died last month.

In November 2011, he completed 24 hours of consecutive lectures on his own, raising £8,000 for the charity.

Lectures were given on a range of subjects, including history, law and chemistry.

Organiser Catherine Annabell said: “It was a direct tribute to what Tim achieved.”
