I am running a 10k for the Children’s Choirs of St. John the Divine Kennington on 28th May. I have never done this before. I’m training regularly and am aiming for a time of around 40 minutes. https://www.vitalitylondon10000.co.uk/
I started working at St. John the Divine, Kennington, in 2013. The mission of the church community was to share choral music with a new generation from the local area. Since then, we have worked yearly with 70 local children each week, singing regular services and concerts. They also sang in our wedding two years ago!
The parish of St John the Divine Kennington, which runs the choirs, has levels of social deprivation higher than 93% of parishes in the country. The choirs cost £35,000 a year to run. We receive no regular funding and rely on donations and grants.
If I make my fundraising target, we woud be able to fund three places on our residential course in Cambridge in the summer.
