West Norfolk musician to play 12-hours without stopping
Passionate music maker Noelle Scott is busy preparing for a 12-hour a sponsored non-stop music marathon in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Mrs Scott, 69, will be tickling the keys on her portable keyboard on Saturday, June 29 at the Narborough Sports and Social Club.
This will be Mrs Scott’s second major music marathon and will be in memory of her husband ,Dennis, who died aged 83 in September last year.
She said her husband had been a great supporter of her music-making over the years and would have wanted her to continue with her fundraising.
She has set herself a target of £2,000 and has already raised £200.
“I have been amazed by the response to my charity, the East Anglian Air Ambulance and I think that is because you never know when you might need its services yourself. They want to operate a 24/7 service so need more funding,”she said.
Mrs Scott says everyone is welcome to go along to the event which runs from 10am until 10pm.
“I really want to raise as much money as I can for this very deserving charity by doing what I love most - making music and giving pleasure to people by doing so and, of course, raising lots of money for the Air Ambulance along the of money for theAir Ambulance along the way,” she said.
Mrs Scott, who works as a legal secretaryforLynn solicitors Fraser Dawbarns LLP has an eclectjc repertoire, ranging from symphony orchestras and Status Quo through to bagpipes so there will be something to suit all tastes during the marathon.
