My story

[p]Hello there![/p][p]My name is Rita and I am the Activities and Interpretation Officer at Turner's house in Twickenham.[/p][p]My challenge is to spread some knowledge about J.M.W. Turner by sharing 26 books that talk about the artist, his painting technique and places he lived and travel to. [/p][p]I would like to fundraise money for three different charities which are very important in the local community in Richmond. [/p][p]The money you donate or raise from my challenge will allow us to continue our Learning Programme for young and old. We offer an important resource for local primary and secondary schools. We are keen to make sure that we can still welcome the 300+ children who were looking forward to visiting the House this year. We also partner with local mental health and elderly focused organisations offering this peaceful house for tailored, supportive programmes – we expect the need for this to increase even more when we are able to reopen.[/p][p]Richmond Borough MIND and Richmond AGE UK are very important charities in the local community and part of the money raised will help them support the people in need during this strange period of our lives and in the future.[/p][p]Thank you![/p]

Thinking of the beautiful staircase at Turner's House makes my daily climb of 4 flights x 6 on my much more ordinary one a much more rewarding exercise!
