Krissy and Friends Foundation
Who we are
We enable children and young people of East Anglia who have a life changing illness or injury access to therapy through music.
By virtue of the work we do, we bring musicians together from all music genres for the benefit of a shared ‘good cause’. All of our supporters make (and love) their music because they recognise its unfailing ability to touch and reach people in a very personal and unique way. From time to time, we have all been affected, each of us in our own way by music; its sounds, its rhythms and its melodies.
We believe that music can provide valuable support both emotionally and psychologically to families who are enduring what is, perhaps, the most distressing time of their lives.
As an extension of this work, we hope to have open and frank dialogues with people about illness and injury, the effect they can have on people and the barriers they can erect between those affected and the world around them. We hope that our work with schools and community groups will help people to understand and remove the stigmas so often attached to serious illness and injury as well as the effects of treatment and the journey through bereavement.
The Krissy and Friends Foundation has no affiliation to any national charity or organisation. All money raised stays in our local area for the benefit of families in our community.
