It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Frank Doran, Lewisham Music’s Chair of the Board of Trustees. Frank had a distinguished career including many years as Member of Parliament for Aberdeen. He worked tirelessly to establish Lewisham Music including working with staff, Council officers, and Lewisham’s Mayor & Cabinet and Councillors to ensure the Music Service’s successful transition to charitable status in April 2017. His vision, sense of purpose, kindness, commitment and passion for the importance of music in young people’s lives were an inspiration and he will be much missed. We owe Frank an enormous debt of gratitude, and we send our heartfelt sympathies to his family and to his many friends and colleagues at this difficult time.
