TWO of Indigo Art’s longest serving members are getting themselves in training for the Three Peaks Challenge, to raise money for the Redditch group.
Lucy and Natalie, who have been members of Indigo since its inception, started in the musicmaker-singing group 17 years ago and are now in Indigo’s O25 adult singing group.
Lucy is also a trustee.
When members were asked to come up with fund-raising ideas to support Indigo’s many community arts projects, the two decided to lace up their walking boots and tackle the three biggest mountains in Scotland, Wales and England within a 24-hour period.
The duo set up their own fundraising page and so far they’ve brought in more than £400, with Indigo supporters right behind them – from the comfort of their own armchairs!
Both see the project as an opportunity to give something back to the charity which has nurtured their creative skills and abilities.
They have also been very much involved with various Indigo projects, experiencing first hand the valuable creative work undertaken by the charity and the community good that comes from it.
The pair are now hoping that the town will get behind them by donating to their fund-raiser.
Indigo project director Cathy Moss said: “Every donation, no matter how small, will make an enormous difference to Indigo, and to Lucy and Natt’s drive to make it to the top times three!”
The Three Peaks Challenge, which includes climbing Ben Nevis, Snowdon, and Scafell Pike, takes place over Tuesday and Wednesday, July 17-18 and Indigo is challenging them to sing from each peak, with a whole host of suitable songs suggested from the Sound of Music, to The Climb, and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.
