Parents of Lee Dunford and overall organisers of the annual charity concert in memory of their son who died from Hodgkins Lymphoma at the age of 17.   Starting in 2006, LeeStock was born when a bunch of Lee’s friends wanted to put on a tribute gig in the memory of music mad Lee Dunford who had sadly passed away earlier that year. The gig was a rip-roaring success, very well attended as be-fitting someone as popular as Lee.

The Willow Foundation was founded in 1999 by former Arsenal goalkeeper and TV presenter, Bob Wilson and his wife, Megs as a lasting memorial to their daughter, Anna, who died of cancer aged 31. The charity receives no government or lottery funding and is totally reliant on the generosity of individuals, companies and trusts to fund its work.To date, Willow has provided more than 12,000 Special Days for young adults diagnosed with a life-threatening condition such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis and Huntington’s disease.
