The Witham is very special to me - it's a gem of an arts centre in a beautiful rural market town in Barnard Castle, County Durham, and was the place that invested in beginning my career, training me in arts marketing, administration, venue management and outreach education.
Community and high quality, varied arts engagement have been the core focus of this historical and inspiring building, but due to the ever competitive world of funding in the arts, it means we need to find alternative fundraising methods in order to secure it's future.
The Investing in The Witham Appeal has an initial target of £30,000 to be reached in 30 days starting on 7th August, 2018.
The overall mission is to continue to be able to provide all with opportunity to experience, participate and be excited by great arts and entertainment.
The art centre is very important in a rural community, and is a lifeline to local people, young and older, in providing a community space.
Having studied Community Music and being passionate about accessible arts, and as well as being an avid hiker and trekker, this fundraising challenge is my perfect opportunity to give back to The Witham.
Lakeland 10 Peak Challenge
The Lakeland 10 Peaks Challenge is a step up from challenges such as the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge, and arguably the National 3 Peaks Challenge.
The 17.5 mile route racks up a huge 2500m ascent over 10 peaks - in one day! The peaks included in the challenge are also some of the tallest in England, such as Great Gable, Scafell Pike and Bowfell. The challenge requires a good level of fitness, bucket loads of motivation andoodles of mental strength. The average time taken to complete the challenge is between 12-14 hours so an early start is required.
I no doubt will also be camping in the rain prior and after the event, alone, just to top it off!!!!
