Stefan Paul Sanchez (13 December 1954 – 18 July 2020)
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of our beloved Stefan.
His last wish was that the show must go on, and although this news comes as a shock to all of us, we know that his wish was that we continue the Voice Wellness project this week and for the children to perform in his honour at the British Club on this forthcoming Sunday, 26th July.
We will begin the session tomorrow with a moment of remembrance, and then respect his wishes and continue working towards the performance. The last thing Stefan said to us all was “this is going to be a great show!”
