Few Words About Us

It all began in a telephone call (as the world was locked in isolation) in March 2020 when the worldwide pandemic hit Lanzarote. A lot of disadvantaged people on the Island of Lanzarote had been left with no income and no way to buy the most basic of life’s necessities including food and water. These people were lost in an over bureaucratic and slow government support system. David Timmons and Joey Bracken (two entertainers based in Lanzarote) decided to do something amazing……

They knew they wanted to do something as they could not just sit back and watch literally thousands of families starve. They also knew about a local voluntary emergency service on the island who were helping families with everything from emergency medical help to delivering much needed food to hungry families (some of whom had not eaten in days).

It became evident early on they needed a bit of help from friends to get the idea started and asked Geraldine Mc Faddon (a local entrepreneur) for logistic and publicity help and she jumped at the chance. Graham Bowman (another local business owner) decided he wanted to help with both logistics and organisation in order to start the ball rolling on the record breaking Lanzarote Musicians Unite Virtual Concert. PR was the next issue and Susana Fondón stepped up and offered her services. Lastly but nowhere near least Amado Vizcaino, a local respected politician and business owner organised the meetings with local television and Emerlan which completed the founding member collaboration of Lanzarote Musicians Unite.

The rest, as they say is history…….
