More about our campaign

UPDATE: I’ve now completed the challenge! My final run of 8.43m on 31 December made a total of 2017.17m across last year. We’ll keep the donation page online for a little while longer for any final donations to be made.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far.


We're really proud of the work that Northern Opera Group has achieved since the company started in 2015, and we've ambitions to launch even bigger and wider-reaching productions over the coming years - enabling us to bring more rare and wonderful operas to more audiences and participants across the region.


In order to do this, however, we will need to raise more money! We're extremely grateful to those supporters who have helped us thus far, and we hope that you'll join us as we embark on an exciting and ambitious artistic programme in 2017 and beyond ...


My goal is to raise £2,017 in 2017 by running a total of 2,017 miles across the year. Whilst I have done some running before, this will certainly be a challenge for me! 2,017 miles is equivalent to 5.5 miles every day, 39 miles every week, or 77 marathons across the year.


I'll be keeping everyone updated on my progress on the Northern Opera Group website, where you can also find out which races I'll be competing in across the year - it would be wonderful to hear some tuneful cheers along the way!


The suggested donation is £20.17, however all donations will make a difference to our work. For any donations of £50 or above, we'll be very pleased to make you a Friend of Northern Opera Group.


Thank you very much for your support
