Our Ambassadors respond creatively to lockdown
Walkathons, space-ships and chat shows: Stay Up Late Ambassadors respond creatively to lockdown
Our Ambassadors are normally the people who are out campaigning for us, speaking at conferences and spreading the word about Stay Up Late. With the pubs closed and events cancelled it’s been a difficult time for all of us. Our Ambassadors have been rising to the challenge, however, and finding some great things to do. Last week we heard from Daniel. This week we look at what Simon, Phil and Jason are up to.
Our Ambassador Simon Richards has set himself the challenge of doing an indoor walkathon raising money for charity locally. In his JustGiving page he explains:
“I’m Simon and I’m from Cardiff. I love going for walks, but due to the coronavirus and living in a central area that hasn’t been possible. But I’ve still been able to go for walks and that’s because I’m fortunate enough to have a nice long corridor in my flat to walk up and down! And now I’d like to turn this into a opportunity to raise awareness (and of course money!) for those who are fighting this horrible virus and to treat those affected by it. So my goal is to walk a distance equal to a marathon, up and down a corridor in my flat – I will be doing this at least 100 times a day until I’ve got the marathon distance of 42.2km done! And who knows, I might just keep on going! “

Our Ambassador Phillip Dyer, meanwhile, has been getting creative with the lego – building this impressive Star Wars spaceship.
Jaydog’s Chat Show
Finally, Jason O’Neill who hosted his own Jaydog’s Chat Show at our last AGM is now working on an online version of his famous chat show.
Jason will be interviewing some of the stars of our Gig Buddies Coronavirus Festival next month for a special online edition of Jaydog’s Chat Show. Watch this space for more details!
