Story

Hannah Lindfield was a young woman who suffered from Pfeiffer Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes the bones of the skull to fuse together so it cannot grow properly. Hannah suffered all her life and was in and out of hospital until her premature death at the age of 23 in November 2014. She was deaf and registered blind but despite this she was a talented artist with a wonderful sense of colour and an incredible personal story.

Speaking about her art, Hannah said:

"it allows me to communicate my emotions and fears to doctors and loved ones and to act as therapy to get myself through difficult and painful times. Futhermore, this is also why colour is so important in my art, as it allows me to communicate emotion"

A special gala charity concert took place on Friday 4 September 2015  to raise funds to enable Hannah's family to publish Hannah's biography.

***SPECIAL GUEST ARTISTS***

Fenella Humphreys, violin and Corinne Morris, cello


The programme included music by Vaughan Williams, Elgar, Dvorak, Faure, Rachmaninov, Debussy, Kreisler, Ravel and Saint-Saens.

We are keeping this fundraising page open for the time being - please consider making a donation to enable Headlines to continue their important work supporting people like Hannah and her family.
