AAM Fundraising Heroes - Wayne

Why did you decide to raise funds for Accessible Arts & Media?

I have been involved with Accessible Arts and Media since early 2017, and since then, I have been an avid supporter of the work they do. Seeing first-hand the impact they have on members is so inspiring and it is crucial that charities like Accessible Arts and Media receive the support they need in order to continue to do the incredible things they do!

If you had to sum up Accessible Arts & Media in three words, what words would you choose?

Inclusive, inspiring and heart-warming.

How would you describe the difference Accessible Arts & Media makes?

For me, Accessible Arts and Media is a community. It is a place where members can go and be themselves, make friends and have fun. Accessible arts and media make so many people smile and facilitate a welcoming, friendly environment. This is crucial and ultimately can make people feel less isolated in what can be a very lonely world for some.

How's your training going?

Very well! I have always enjoyed exercise (when I can find the time!!) and this has given me a reason to keep things up!
