Story

Hello and thank you so much for taking the time to visit my fundraising page. I am taking part in Try-a-Tri (a mini triathlon for women-only) on May 12th and would be so very grateful for any sponsorship. Those who know me are aware that this is hugely outside my comfort zone but I wanted to do something good, whilst continuing to test my dodgy leg, post my 2017 break! The mini triathlon consists of an 800m swim, 11km bike ride and a 2.5km run. Unfortunately, during half term, the orthopaedic surgeon told me I’m not allowed to ever run on my leg, so I shall be speed-walking that section. This is my explanation in advance for my embarrassingly slow time but I’ll just be grateful to get round!

I am raising money for Nordoff Robbins, which is a wonderful music therapy charity for vulnerable and isolated people. I am incredibly fortunate to have a job in music and being a Monkey Music teacher has taught me just how powerful music can be.

I will be taking part in the triathlon alongside a team of amazing women, all of them connected to Monkey Music in some way. As a team, we aim to raise £15,000 for this fantastic cause and you can follow our team’s progress by clicking on this link https://www.justgiving.com/companyteams/MonkeyTriTeam.

Any sponsorship will make a difference.  For example:
- £5 will provide a tool for a non-verbal child to be able to express themselves beyond words through something as simple as drumsticks
- £50 will pay for a child suffering from cancer to attend a music therapy session
- £250 will pay for a full day of music therapy in a dedicated centre.

I’d really love for my part in the fundraising to provide two full days of music therapy, so my target is £500! 

THANK YOU SO MUCH, I hugely appreciate
any donation towards this incredible charity.
