My story

[p]Hello friends and not-yet-friends,[/p][p]Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.[/p][p] I'm a recorder player and I'm undertaking a number of challenges throughout they year to raise funds for Save the Children's Syria Appeal. [/p][p]One of these challenges is running the London Marathon 2016 with one of my recorders. To raise funds I've also been playing a series of concerts throughout the year around the UK under the umbrella of [b]Concerts for Syria [/b]which I founded in October 2015 (www.concertsforsyria.com).[/p][p]After more than four years of conflict it is children who are hit the hardest by the terrible events in Syria, and the ensuing refugee crisis has become the greatest humanitarian crisis today. 12 milion Syrians have now fled their homes because of conflict, 6 million of whom are children, and c.4 million Syrians in total are now refugees. [/p][p]Children living as refugees are affected by a number of risks, perhaps the highest being malnutrition, exposure to cold, and lack of education. [/p][p]For these reasons, I believe it is hugely and vitally important to do all we can to support those working to help Syrian children touched by the crisis, and would invite you to donate to Save the Children to contribute towards my fundraising efforts. [/p][p]For details of the concerts, please visit www.concertsforsyria.com, and come along if there's one near you!If you have a venue in mind that might like to support this initiative by hosting a concert, do get in touch via concertsforsyria@gmail.com.[/p][p]Thanks for reading this, do join in by supporting financially, sharing the page, or even just wishing me good luck in my efforts![/p]
