Hello ladies and gents, how are we all?

My eldest daughter, Heather, attends the Orpheus Centre in Godstone, Surrey, and is in her third and final year. The college do amazing and vital work via the performing arts supporting students like Heather to transition confidently into society and to live as independently as possible.

Last year, Lucy, a talented young student at the college who was a keen drummer, sadly passed away. In her memory and to help raise funds for the wonderful work the college do, a 'Repeat The Beat' event will be held on the 3rd March.

In my folly as a drummer who's a sandwich short of a picnic, I suggested I could do a ‘drumathon’ to help the event. So on Sat 19th Feb I’ll be drumming my arms off from 9am until 9pm in a crazy twelve hour tub thumping marathon. I’m doing my bit in advance of the main event so that I can edit together a short video for the college to use in their live stream on the 3rd March.

Please help support the brilliant work the Orpheus do and help make a positive difference to the lives of the incredible young people at the college.

Thank you.

Dave Perkins
