Liza runs London for Studio 3 Arts!

It's true.  I'm running the 2017 London Marathon to raise money for Studio 3 Arts.

Studio 3 Arts, the arts organisation/charity I run, turns 30 this year.  In the last 3 decades we've changed the lives of countless people in East London, and changed the face of socially-engaged arts practice in the UK, through our innovative, bold community-led approach to arts and creativity.  In the last year alone we've engaged more than 20,000 local people in our work, as curators, performers, volunteers, stage managers, artists, audiences and participants.  No other organisation does it quite like us. 

I'm so proud to lead such a fearless, talented and ambitious team into our 30th year.  We want to celebrate our birthday by working with more people than ever before.  Times are ultra hard for the arts and charity sector, and so I've decided to undertake this enormous challenge of running 26.2 miles to raise money to help us reach more people in East London.

In case you don't know,  I'm disabled.  I live with Degenerative Disc Disease, so every day is a festival of pain.  So this marathon is an uber-challenge.  

I'd be delighted if you could chuck a few quid in the pot, and even more delighted if you could come along to see me run on the 23 April.  Bring Jelly Babies.  And Prosecco.

Thank you
