NRAS has been selected to take part in the BBC Radio 4 Appeal this month

05 September 2023

We are so pleased to share with you that Kirsty Young, who presented the BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs programme and more recently was the principal anchor in the coverage of the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, is supporting NRAS in our BBC Radio 4 charity Appeal. 

As Kirsty is someone who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in 2018, we invited her to be the voice of the appeal and she was thrilled to offer her support to NRAS. We shared with Kirsty, the story of Dee, and Dee’s painful day to day journey with RA. Kirsty was moved by Dee’s story of how she had to give up work and what it meant to her to find such vital support and information offered by NRAS following a call to our helpline.

You can hear our appeal when it goes out live on Sunday 10th Sept at 07:54 and 21:25 and on Thursday 14th Sept at 15:27

Find out more on our campaign page below, and please ask people to listen in and donate if they are able to, it’s only though the support of all our community that we can continue to be here for all those who need us right now and in the future. Striving for life without limitations.
