George’s Rockstars was set up in memory of 6 year old Gorgeous George. Our mission is to bring smiles to children in hospital starting with funding music therapy.

George’s Story

George was first diagnosed with leukaemia in November 2014 aged 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 chemo, total body and cranial radiotherapy, bone marrow transplant and revolutionary CAR 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 infectious smile and character. His family decided to start George’s Rockstars in his name to provide music therapy for children in hospital and bring smiles to children that spend too much of their childhood in hospital.

We became a registered charity in March 2020!

⭐️Last call for any videos or pictures of music therapy in action would be greatly appreciated ⭐️
If you are a family of a child who has had music therapy with Cathy and would like to share your child’s/ your experience/ feelings from the session we would love to hear from you!

We're putting together a short film to celebrate George's birthday and say thank you to everyone who has supported us so far and would absolutely love to share your stories. Please use this link to upload a short clip (or two!) to be included. This could be footage from a music therapy session itself or a message from you and your family.

Don't worry about making it look professional, recording on your phone is perfect, and please try to keep individual clips to under 30 seconds so we can get as many in as possible! Our film will be used to help showcase what we do and assist in fundraising at events and on social media to enable us to keep providing music therapy for children in hospital as this is entirely funded by the charity and its amazing supporters.

Thank you for helping us help kids rock! 🤘⭐️
