It is with great sadness that we have received news of the death of Mark Seabrooke. Mark was a great supporter of the Regen Centre during its formative years when his then wife, Alison, was the driving force behind the Centre's development and subsequent early operation. We send our condolences to all his friends and relatives, particularly Grace, Max, Samuel, Alison, Mary and Spencer.

In 2015 we raised over £16,000 in fund-raising. This money is being used to refurbish inside and outside areas of the Centre and to purchase new capital equipment, such as a portable PA System. In 2016, we hope to raise £20,000 from our fund-raising efforts. If you have any ideas or can help in any way, please let us know.

Four in a row for Riccall Regen For the fourth time in fifteen years Riccall Regen 2000 Ltd has been awarded a Duke of York’s Community Initiative Award.
