As a believer in the transformational power of the  arts I am proud to be supporting such an inspiring charity. As a Create artist myself I have seen the work of the organisation first hand. I have always been aware of the depth of experience that music enables but working with Create has proved to me that music can mean so much to so many people, from evoking distant memories in residential homes for older people, to the eye popping excitement of young children seeing live music for the first time, to the relaxing qualities in hospitals and hospices. Having led workshops in such settings has been key to my development as a musician and my understanding of the impact creativity can have on people's lives.

Event details

#TeamCreate takes on RideLondon!

I've chosen this challenge but the participants in Create's projects don't choose their challenges. They may be young carers, spending many hours looking after a chronically sick relative; elderly or homeless people that have become isolated from society; sick children spending time in hospitals and hospices; or adults with learning and physical disabilities. Create takes the power of the creative arts into the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people and makes a difference - to their confidence, relationships and aspirations.  Your donation will help spur me on, so please dig deep to help Create transform the lives of many, many more. * £10 could buy materials to enable disabled and non-disabled children to create a sculpture together
* £50 could enable a young patient to participate in an interactive music workshop whilst in hospital
* £100 could enable a child in care to take part in a confidence-boosting photography project with their friends
