On 20 May Jim Rudge, one of our volunteer stewards, slipped on his running shoes and pounded Bristol’s roads as part of the popular ‘Bristol 10k’ run.
We’re thrilled that Jim chose our very own ‘Cosmos Choir’ as his charity and, as he himself says, it’s a truly worthy cause.
“Cosmos is living proof that singing is something we can all enjoy, be inspired by and develop through, regardless of our social, cultural or economic background. To date, over 150 young people in Knowle West and district have grown through the experience of singing in Cosmos. Cosmos is St George’s own small contribution to transforming children through singing, and Suzi Digby’s endorsement of this through her acceptance of the role of Patron, makes us all the more determined to carry on raising the much-needed funds to enable this invaluable resource to continue for years to come.”
Jim came 5435th out of some 11000 runners, with a time of 58:19, and has so far raised £220.00 for our Cosmos Children’s Community Choir. Thanks so much to Jim for his hard work and well done for what is a great personal achievement!
