Carli Lansley Foundation - raising money for CRY

"On 1st June 2017, my wife – Carli Lansley – sadly passed away from Sudden Arrythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) at the age of just 36. We have two young children – Jessica (11) and Ethan (7).

It has naturally been a devastating time for the family but we are now trying to do something positive to make sure no other family should go through what we are going through.

Our aim is to raise sufficient funds to cover the cost of holding ECG screenings for young people (aged 14-35) in the Southend area. These screenings will enable 100 young people per day to receive a free ECG."

The Music Man Project UK

The Music Man Project is the UK’s first full-time music education service specifically for children and adults with learning disabilities. It was founded in South Essex by former Deputy Head Teacher David Stanley to meet a growing demand from parents for regular and accessible musical opportunities for their children. His aim was to access the innate musicality in everyone, regardless of their learning difficulty or special educational need. David initially established a weekly music school in 2001 and then in 2012, shortly after qualifying as a Head Teacher, he left his mainstream secondary school post to launch a full-time specialist charitable provision. His approach centres on education, enjoyment and performance through the teaching of his original music at special schools, colleges, care homes, weekly music schools and daily adult classes in the community.
