Weʼre raising £200 to to help provide musical opportunities to young people across Darlington and Co Durham by raising money for the Durham Music Trust
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Across Darlington and Co Durham, thousands of students are taught all kinds of music by fantastic teachers of the Durham Music Service. The service provides opportunities to play brass, woodwind, percussion as well as singjng and sign language singing.
Music is so important to young people, so much can be expressed through music, and music can be so calming and relaxing and feeds the soul. The ability to play an instrument or to sing is so life affirming.
There are hundreds of groups and ensembles in Big Band Jazz, flute choir, orchestras, choral groups, primary recorder groups and samba drums. There are concerts, show cases and international tours as well as important national competitions.
i am aiming to raise money for the newly founded Durham Music Trust so they can carry on this amazing work.

Oops! I’ve had a very busy, hot week doing the tourist stuff in London. I’ve walked 36 miles but only run 6 at a fantastic 10k run in Regents Park last week. I’ll be back in training tomorrow so rest assured if you’re able to donate to my half marathon frenzy (2 in 2 weeks - what was I thinking?!) then the young musicians in County Durham will be so grateful, as will I. Thank you xx
