George’s Rockstars was set up in memory of 6 year old Gorgeous George. Our mission is to make children in hospitals smile through the power of music therapy.

George’s Story

We became a registered charity in March 2020!

George was diagnosed with leukaemia at just 22 months old in November 2014, aged just 22 months old. During his near 5 year battle, he sadly relapsed 4 times and after having all the treatment there was available including high dose chemotherapy, total body and cranial radiotherapy, bone marrow transplant and revolutionary CART T cell therapy, George passed away at home in August 2019, surrounded by his family.

George adored music and nature and had a huge zest for life and an infectious smile and character.

The charity was inspired by George’s experience with music therapy during intensive treatment at Bristol Children’s Hospital. Music therapy was the highlight of George’s week and gave a then 4 year old George a way to express his frustrations and fears of being in isolation in hospital.

Music therapy isn’t widely available in NHS hospitals so George’s family set up the charity to bring music therapy to children in hospital, many of which have serious and/or life limiting illnesses / disabilities and like George, spend too much of their childhood in hospital.

We became a registered charity in March 2020!

We are incredibly proud to be supported by some amazing causes…
