Story

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Maggie's.

My name is Kim Cypher. I am a professional saxophonist, vocalist, composer, band leader and radio presenter from Cheltenham. Many of you will know that all my music and projects are inspired by something...a person, an experience, a feeling, something I feel passionate about...

So, you will understand my overwhelming passion about this project.

Having met a very special lady, Karen Jackson, in 2017, with an incredible life-story, I poured out my emotions in a song I wrote, (a song of hope) called 'Maybe...' (on Spotify if you'd like to take a listen).

Several years on, I found myself composing a new song called 'Bring Your Own Sunshine' inspired by Karen's amazing positivity and her ability to bring sunshine to everyone she meets.

Over the past few years I have also become very much aware of an amazing charity which provides the most incredible care for cancer patients. The charity is totally reliant on donations.

I remember the first time I visited Maggie's in Cheltenham. Such a welcoming place for cancer patients, their friends and family to gather their thoughts. It felt like a 'home from home' where a warm welcome and support throughout your journey would be guaranteed.

So, I am thrilled to be able to give something back and i'm on a mission to raise awareness of the incredible work of Maggie's Centres in honour of my beautiful friend Karen who sadly passed away in May, the day after this page was launched.

I have an amazing team of musicians, creative people and friends who are supporting the project. So, 'Bring Your Own Sunshine', a song for Maggie's in honour of Karen is coming soon!

Any donations are very gratefully received. Thank you x
