About

The Lenny Trusler Children’s Foundation

​The Lenny Trusler Children’s Foundation (LTCF) is dedicated to helping provide the relief of serious illness in newborn babies and infants, both in the UK and abroad. The foundation was created by violinists Matthew Trusler and Maya Koch after the death of their baby son from a rare kidney disease in April 2007. Just one month after its official launch in 2008 it was chosen as Charity of the Year by Reef Television. The award included a £10.000 donation towards the LTCF’s first mission, a family room for the neonatal unit of the Whittington Hospital London. Since then the foundation has collaborated with a range of performers, raising funds through musical projects. In 2010 the LTCF hosted a Gala event in London featuring over twenty artists including comedian Michael McIntyre, actor Tom Conti, the Belcea Quartet and cellist Natalie Clein. In recent years the foundation has been able to buy vital life saving equipment including a new incubator, again for the neonatal unit of the Whittington Hospital, and has begun supporting a children’s hospice, Helen & Douglas House in Oxford.

Projects

To celebrate the release of From a Fairy to a Child, written by Jools Holland to raise money for the Lenny Trusler Children’s Foundation, we asked a collection of inspiring and creative people to send us a list of ten tracks that have made a difference to their lives.

Each playlist is called ‘My Wonderland’, and you can click here to see the whole collection:

From a Fairy to a Child


The Single

The final chapter of the Wonderland project, an exclusive composition by Jools Holland, is set for release on Friday 19th October.

From a Fairy to a Child is Jools Holland’s response to the Lewis Carroll poem, and has been lovingly arranged for string quartet and piano by Carl Davis. On this recording the newly formed Orchid Ensemble perform the piece with Ashley Wass on piano, and the track will be available to download and stream from October 19th – with all profits going to the Lenny Trusler Children’s Foundation.
