Welcome to the Marc Bolan School of Music!
The Light Of Love Foundation UK, wants, as Marc Bolan did, to inspire children, to give them the chance to learn to play musical instruments, to write, to compose, to produce records and to be heard by the world. To achieve this we are building a music school for the children of Sierra Leone, West Africa, in the town of Makeni. Please help us make this happen soon. We want to see the hearts and minds of these children filled with creativity and excitement, with plans and dreams and a deep faith in their own realised ability.
The Light Of Love Foundation UK is a listed Charity,
Our Charity Number is: 1164256
The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is one of the deadliest the world has ever seen and the consequences in places like Makeni have been devastating.

For the orphans that attend, The Marc Bolan School of Music gives them hope, joy and a platform for their talents.The CD also features an original song, 'Unity', written and performed by one of our music students, Prince Kamara from Sierra Leone as well as a bonus version of 'Light of Love' and an interview with founders of both schools: Gloria Jones, Paul Stuart Davies and Mark Bateson.

'Hi, Gloria Jones here. Thank you all so much for your interest and support for our project, to build The Marc Bolan School of Music in Makeni, Sierra Leone. The project is growing, in exciting ways, and we have just made a very big step towards building the school! I have been negotiating with people here who support us, and believe me, the news is good! Keep giving, keep supporting our children, our teachers. Help us to make more music! We will have our very own place, a building to be proud of. This school will be at the heart of the community, to inspire and to serve. Keep Marc’s music in your hearts, and see his wonderful legacy grow in a beautiful way.'
