Ilkley Half Rob
I'm running the Ilkley Half Marathon today to raise money for Made with Music. It's the first Ilkley race and I haven't run a half marathon for 15 years...
We provide accessible and educational live music experiences for families and young people.
In 2019 so far, we've won an Attitude is Everything Outstanding Attitude Award award for our Mini-Gigs and come runner up in the HOOP! award for Best Family Entertainment category.
We believe that:
Music is for everyone - we love introducing music to groups who may not have had the opportunity before
Music should be shared - we never work on our own and love sharing our skills and experiences whilst learning from others (it’s lonely being freelance!)
Music is best experienced live - we work with trained musicians in a variety of genres and introduce a variety of instruments
Music doesn’t discriminate - everyone is unique and so our work is planned thoughtfully in collaboration those we work with
Music is adaptable - we enjoy responding to new environments and taking music to interesting or unusual places

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
