Adam says:

”The Hospice is an amazing place, they cared for my Mother in her later stages of secondary breast cancer offering both day care and then full time care in the last week of her life. They also provided amazing care for my family & friends.”

“I am funding the project as my donation to the lodge, therefore all money raised from the sale of the CD will be donated to Lindsey Lodge.
I am truly indebted to the wonderful musicians and friends who gave their time and expertise for free to help me realise this goal.”

To hear some samples from the CD please visit www.linsley.co.uk. Have a listen to the sample tracks and you will hear lovely, expertly played music with a wide appeal.



You can buy the CD for £10 (or more if you feel like it) from Adam (the best way because he can give all the money to the Hospice) and in addition digital downloads will be available from Jazzmouse and from iTunes.

Adam is selling the CD on eBay as the money can be donated directly to Lindsey Lodge. Please visit www.ebay.co.uk or www.ebay.com and search for "Adam Linsley"

"After ‘A’ levels I worked for British Steel for 16 years, based in the Payroll Department. I worked on weekly and monthly payrolls for all areas of B.S. Unfortunately during my years there I was constantly working on calculating redundancy payments, so sad to see racks of wallet files each one a person made redundant. I also became involved in TQP, a programme to inspire everyone to give Total Quality Performance. I was often involved in training new staff or giving talks to the graduate trainees. I met Terry my husband on a management training course.
I left BS when my daughter Hannah was born in 1994. In 1995 Alexandrea was born. Our two daughters kept me busy.
I became involved in the local playgroup first as a committee member and then as Chairman. This eventually led to me being employed part time since 2001. I have done my childcare courses and have completed NVQ Level 3 in Learning Support.
One of the best things about working back at Sir John Nelthorpe School is keeping up to date with modern education especially since our girls are in years 9 and 10.
I’ve learnt so many new skills especially in the Resistant Materials Department; let’s face it girls didn’t do woodwork at BGHS.
I went to the BGHS reunion last year and I will be going to the Dinner for the first time in 2009."
