Inspirational Fundraisers that happened in 2017/2018
In April 2018, Danni De Wolfe ran the London Marathon raising funds for Help Musicians UK. Despite it being the hottest on record, she achieved a brilliant time and raised over £1000. She had this to say about the event:
"The charity has impacted the lives of countless industry professionals i've had the pleasure of working with, something which pushed me to persevere throught the cold, winter training and over that finish line (well, that and the insanely loud, rallying cries of the team)."
We hope that these fundraising ideas inspire you, your family and your friends to join us on our mission to help musicians across the UK.
Be sure to send us your photos and to tell us about your unique fundraising experience by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
