Father of 5 J-Rock was put in touch with Anna Kennedy OBE founder of autism charity Anna Kennedy Online when one of his sons got diagnosed with autism. Anna, a patron of #UKCharityWeek, is a campaigner for autism and set up schools and colleges all over the country for autistic children and adults when there were once no provisions provided.
Speaking to Charity Today, Anna said: “When Lee approached us about it, it was a no-brainer!” We are delighted that the song will play such a pivotal role throughout #UKCharityWeek.”
#UKCharityWeek is designed to give the people of the United Kingdom an opportunity to place awareness and fundraising for charities high on the national agenda at a time of the year when people are statistically at their most giving. #UKCharityWeek is always held within the first full week of December, which in the case of 2018 is 3rd-9th December. Charities can become Official Partners of the campaign by registering here: https://www.charitytoday.co.uk/charity-partner-registration
Performed by J-Rock, and the AKO (Anna Kennedy Online) Autism songwriters group ‘Building Bridges’ – Kieron, Scott, Bradley, Calvin, Ryan, Erika and Marie. Produced by Darren Martyn (DM unsigned) and filmed by Mark Potter.
