Sheffield musician loses his accordion – and finds his way to £3k

Have your say

He may not have made it a musical marathon, but Luke Carver Goss still raised more than £3,000 for South Yorkshire dementia charity Lost Chord by running the London Marathon.

The 47-year-old accordionist, of Meersbrook, is one of the team of Lost Chord professional musicians who visit care homes, providing musical experiences for people with dementia.

As a keen jogger, he was delighted to represent the charity at the marathon.

Although he did toy with the idea of carrying his accordion, Luke decided to leave the instrument behind – and still raised £3,200 for Lost Chord.
