I first met Anna-Louise, Stuart, Fraser and Elizabeth Bates with some of their extended family in 2015 on their holiday whilst The Zoots were performing our show on a cruise ship. Her son Fraser was the first ever volunteer we had perform on stage with the band for our theatre shows. Fraser was such a natural and we were so impressed with his performance on stage! We stayed in touch with Stuart and Anna and were delighted when we heard that Fraser started guitar lessons as he enjoyed playing with the band so much.
It was in December 2015 that we heard the tragic news that Stuart and Fraser had been hit by a car and killed. It was the most devastating news a wife and a mother could ever have. Fraser was however able to save 8 lives by donating his organs.
