We’ve received funding to create a site-specific community project in Heworth, Gateshead for summer 2021.

At the centre of this professionally produced production will be art and media installations, soundscapes and designs created by local community members and school children. These will promote school readiness, sustainability and wellbeing among the community, and will leave a brilliant legacy in the area.

However: we still need to raise another £8,000 to make this project happen. As part of our fundraising effort, Darren will donate 100% of his (first ever) marathon fundraising efforts towards the project.

Please sponsor Darren and help us have a huge impact on the community and surrounding areas of Heworth!

“Having had a very bad accident a few years ago resulting in 3 major operations on my left leg – along with the fact that this is my first ever marathon – I’m super nervous and equally excited to be running such a distance in the (delayed) London Marathon for this great cause! – Darren

Whatever you can give – no matter how big or small – will be hugely appreciated. Thank you!
