Taking on the ultimate test of stamina, strength and endurance this week, Arielle pedalled 100 miles through wind, rain and freezing temperatures to complete her longest ever DJ set, all whilst cycling.

The Radio 1 DJ and teams of listeners worked together to keep the wheels turning and the decks spinning – and they couldn’t have crossed the finish line without your support.

Arielle took on this Red Nose Day challenge to raise life changing money for Comic Relief; and there’s still time to donate. The money raised will help support people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis and tackle issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, and food poverty here in the UK and around the world, so if you can support Arielle and the team, a donation of any amount will help to make a difference.

Ahead of her big challenge, Arielle visited a Comic Relief funded project called ‘Mind Our Music’ in Luton.

Mind Our Music is a weekly music therapy support group for adults with mental health conditions and provides them with a unique opportunity to engage in making high quality live music. The music is led by the participants as much as possible, with the support of facilitators, including a Music Therapist and a Community Musician. The project is run by Music24 at the Bear Club (a Jazz club) in Luton.

Arielle took part in the session, having a go on the drums and various other instruments, and chatting to the participants about their experiences of the project; finding out how it supports their mental health. For over 35 years, Comic Relief has been supporting people facing the toughest times of their lives, both here in the UK and around the world. Please donate what you can, now.
