    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Viv, Sophie and Jess have raised their target from £1,000 to £3,000 because everyone has been so brilliant supporting them!

    Like everyone else hit by Covid, we at Gloucestershire Academy of Music are fighting back!

    As soon as the pandemic struck in March, our team started providing online group and individual lessons to hundreds of children each week. We want to make sure this continues while our parents receive the help they may need from our bursary fund.

    Please support me as chair of GAM to raise £3,000 by running 5K a day for the next 31 days along with my colleagues Sophie George and Jess Smith!

    Streaming lessons from our Barbican House base are artistic director Glyn Oxley and his family Ailsa and Xavi plus tutor Rob Jones.

      Day 31: We've done it thanks to you our supporters!! Jess, Soph and I ran our last lap today and have named our 5K a day challenge 'Jess's Nan's Run' in memory of the grandmother who told Jess to keep going only 10 days ago just before she died. We've raised more than we ever dreamt of for GAM's bursary fund - in excess of £3,500. This will help at least 10 students gain bursary help with their fees in these difficult Covid times. I'd like to thank my grandson Louis for his contribution doing exercise and violin practice daily - raising £31.

      Day 30: One day to go! I've had my lockdown haircut - so no excuses on the speed front tomorrrow! Sophie has clocked up 155.80km over the month to date and a 'very tired' Jess managed fastest pace of 5.59min/km today by the canal at Ebley out of the three of us. It seems slightly surreal that tomorrow is the last 5K-a-day of this amazing challenge and I am so grateful to Jess and Sophie and all of you who have supported us. We know that we have helped some families already and as the Covid fallout continues we hope to help many more.

      Day 29: Two runs to go - and tomorrow I get my lockdown hair cut at long last - so that will be a weight off... with no excuses for a slow time! (The Bearded One has also finally agreed to have his Santa locks dealt with.) We're all beginning to wonder what life will be like without the bleary-eyed, early morning routine. I've a sneaky feeling whippet-fit Tilly won't see any need to stop unless there's a downpour! Jess has found a running companion in her Dad - will he want to stop - especially when running through countryside like this?
