In 2000, John and Christine Lubbock set up the charity Music For Autism inspired by the difficult yet touching journey they had with their son Ali who was diagnosed with autism just before his second birthday.
Since then, Music For Autism has helped over 100,000 children with autism through the power of music and music therapy by taking world class musicians to them, within an environment in which they could express themselves and behave exactly how the music influenced them too. Some ran. Some sat. Some went to sleep. Some came alive. Some were silent for the first time. Some made a sound for the first time. Some conducted. Some sang. The results have been extraordinary and still blow everyone who witnesses the effects it has on these incredible children.
On October the 27th and 28th, Adam - Ali’s brother - is raising money for the charity by doing a 24hr workout in the gym he founded in Henley, ADVHQ.
1hr slots will be offered out in which ANYONE can head down and train with Adam (Lubbs). We encourage as many of you to get involved as possible, especially for the middle of the night graveyard shifts! You can decide what and how you train with him, so this is your chance to get your own back on all the pain he puts us through in the classes!
Please donate what you can. The work that is done by all those involved at Music For Autism is not just enriching the lives for these children but for their families, friends and amazing carers.
