Extra money would go towards general funding for the Institute.

I have decided that I want to do some fundraising.The Birnam Arts institute has always been a very special place for me and I have been visiting my whole life. I have been given so much by the Birnam Arts and now I want to give something back to them.

The Birnam Arts is an amazing place in many ways! The Peter rabbit exhibition has been a favourite to everyone in my family for a very long time. My younger brothers love playing there just as I did when I was younger and many a long afternoon has been spent playing with Peter rabbit and his friends. I took ballet lessons there for a long time and I have taken part in many art classes over the years. I love art and have been able to view lots of art and photography in the Institute. I have had a lot of inspiration from the many pieces of artwork on display. I have always enjoyed reading and the library has been a brilliant place to sit down and read a great book. Mags, the lovely librarian has been a great help to me for a very long time and will always help me and my family find any book we are looking for or discover new books which are just as amazing. My friends and family love to stop by for a cake and it is amazing how so many community events have been held there. I had one of my birthday parties in the hall at the institute, based on Harry Potter. It was one of my best birthdays and brings back happy memories when I think about it. Best of all, the Birnam Arts is an amazing place filled with marvellous people. Everyone who helps there is incredibly kind and helpful and will always listen to what you are asking for or what news you have to tell them.

To raise money I am going to do three climbs this winter, each one will be harder than the last and my third and final climb will be on snow and ice. I haven’t actually done much proper climbing at all before so this is actually quite a big challenge! I will use climbing gear to scramble and climb up the hills with the help of my mountain guide and climbing instructor Uncle Paddy. I want to raise as much money as I possibly can for the Institute.

I hope that many people will help me fundraise towards helping the Brilliant Birnam Arts! Thank you for reading!
