British cellist Rebecca Herman raises an astounding £1,806 for the Musicians Benevolent Fund

From the Musicians Benevolent Fund website:

Rebecca Herman recently took part in a 5km charity run and managed to raise £1,806 for the Musicians Benevolent Fund.

Rebecca is a British cellist who has performed around the world and graduated from the Royal Academy in 2012 with an MA (Distinction).This year, however, she decided to take on a new sporting challenge in the name of charity.

We supported Rebecca through her postgraduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music and she tackled the 5km race as a thank you for this assistance.

We are incredibly grateful to Rebecca for taking the time to fundraise and spread the word about our work and we would like to congratulate her on finishing the race!
