Why I'm raising money for Help Musicians UK

My partner, Rachel, suffers with CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). This still only vaguely understood illness has been with her for some 15 years now.

I have seen for myself how debilitating this can be for her; it affects her energy levels, concentration, memory, and can render her bed-ridden for weeks even months at a time. It strikes without warning and makes life very difficult and frustrating for Rachel. It has a huge impact on her teaching business as well as her ability to write and play music.

Help Musicians UK have helped Rachel several times when she has been unwell and through there support and generosity her life has been made easier during these difficult times.

Running on behalf of Help Musicians UK has therefore not been a difficult decision for me make but I do need your support if they are to continue doing the amazing stuff they do in helping talented musicians across the country get through the more difficult times of their careers.
