Last Sunday, Team Suffolk Artlink donned their red t-shirts and after some dedicated training, took on the challenge with gusto. We were delighted to catch them at the finish line, looking tired but happy.
Between them, Team Suffolk Artlink raised over £1,500 in sponsorship. Thanks to our current Arts Council funding this amount will be doubled, which means our runners have contributed £3,000 towards our work supporting communities in the East – truly amazing.
Runner and Suffolk Artlink colleague, Rachel Bennett, explains how the funds raised will be used: “Connecting communities through creativity and inclusive practice is the heart of what Suffolk Artlink is about. The projects taking place across the county are as diverse as the participants we work alongside. We endeavor through our creative person centred project work to; raise aspirations, celebrate ability, reduce isolation and improve self-confidence.”
If you’re up for taking on a personal challenge in aid of Suffolk Artlink, we’d love to hear from you! Just drop Rachael a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
