Janice Carrick, a member of SI Grange over Sands, has raised £760 in sponsorship for Empowering Girls in Nepal by playing 26 tunes on her flute.
Janice took up the 2.6 Challenge – a fundraising initiative to help charities raise money in these unsettling times. People were invited to complete their own personal challenge on Sunday 26th April, the original date for the London Marathon, by doing something related to the number 26 or 2.6 – the marathon is run over 26 miles. Participants could then donate the money they raised to a charity of their choice.
The challenge Janice set herself was to play 26 tunes consecutively on her flute. She hasn’t played her flute for many years and felt this would be a real personal achievement.
Janice lives in a small hamlet in the Lake District. She played in her garden in beautiful weather giving a mini concert for her neighbours to listen to.
Janice said, “I had such fun playing my flute again after such a long time. It was a real pleasure. My original target was to raise £100 – I am amazed and thrilled to have raised so much more!”
Thank you Janice, what a wonderful way to support our SIGBI project.
