My story

[p]Today, Monday 8th March 2021, would have been the 40th birthday of my late sister, Helen. She was such a beautiful and funny person and one of my best friends. Following her tragic death in late 2005 my family and I set up a new Arts-based charity - called The Helen Foundation - to support and motivate young people in all branches of the Arts in Teignbridge, South Devon. It provides school awards, bursaries, artist workshops and supports major arts projects. You can learn more about the great work of the charity on its website: [url=][/url][/p][p]To help celebrate and mark Helen's 40th birthday, the trustees of the Foundation have decided to launch a really special and important fund-raising challenge - known as THF 40for40! All funds raised will go directly to the charity, and help us create a new Arts Recovery Fund for the coming academic year 2021-22, which local schools will be able to access to boost their Arts work so badly affected by the Covid global pandemic and help continue to bring the joy of Arts into the lives of young people so that they can dare to dream...[/p][p]My personal THF 40for40 challenge is to clock up at least 40,000 steps every 4 days, for 40 consecutive days. Starting today and then up until Saturday 17th April 2021. I will try and remember to post some updates up here from time to time! In the meantime, I'd really appreciate your support. Please donate what you can - every penny really helps. Thank you. [/p]
