Story

In memory of our good friend and colleague Ron Haylock and his abiding passion for music, Christel House and South Africa - all donations will fund the Ron Haylock Music Room at the Christel House Academy in South Africa.

A wall plaque listing donors (in alphabetical order, donations not disclosed) will be mounted at the Academy so that learners may in the future wonder who he was, and why he had so many friends - and be inspired by his story.

Our hope is for the list of his many friends and supporters to be a very long one!
