Mark runs Reading Half Marathon

I am running Reading Half Marathon on behalf of the Mayor of Readings charity & Jelly which is a local arts charity of which I have been part of for the past few years. Jelly has helped me greatly in all sorts of ways. They work incredibly hard to insure that Reading has arts happening.

  • Need

    Need

    jelly works hard across Reading and the wider area, currently it is without a home base and still it goes out delivering projects, supporting artists an the community to engage in the arts

    Without them I would not have done nowhere near the amount of art as I have in the past few years, As well as giving workshops & taking part in them myself. I hope to be able to raise some money for them so that they can continue to do the great work they have done, and also support other local artists.

    Solution

    By fundraising, the project will help pay for rental of halls and spaces for jelly to deliver it's workshop programme and support artists, hopefully giving jelly some security for the next few months whilst it seeks a new home

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To support the work of jelly, engaging people to take part in the arts and supporting the arts

    Activities

    » This project will enable jelly to deliver it's workshops and training with artists and the community

    jelly's Open for Art programme aims to engage the community in the arts through a series of public events. Success will be measured by increase in community engagement


  • Impact

    Impact

    Increased awareness of the arts
    - demonstrated by more people taking part, strengthening of the arts scene

    Risk

    Mark unable to take part in the project - jelly would contact all donors and ask if they wish monies to be returned. The project is going ahead in July so there is still a need for support
