Ron Haylock was a 30+ year timeshare industry veteran, known by many not only for his role as Managing Director for RCI Europe, which under his tenure grew from just a few employees to more than 1,200 staff and over £100 million turnover, but also for his passion for flora and fauna, trees and woodland, fine wines and fine dining.

However two passions stood out more than others, which were the work of Christel House International, founded by his founded by his former RCI employer and friend Christel DeHaan and his love for music.

Ron Haylock was Vice Chairman of Christel House Europe and whilst visiting all Christel House schools around the world, he was particularly connected and devoted to Christel House South Africa, and tirelessly gave his time to fundraising efforts that helped that particular school grow from its first opening in 2001 to what it is today — a life changing establishment for over 800 young disadvantaged children.

Ron always encouraged the students at the Cape Town School to explore and make the most of their opportunities to learn music. It is a vibrant part of their local culture and through music these children are finding new and hitherto unimagined ways to develop and express themselves, complementing their academic achievements.

In dedication of Ron’s inspiration, industry friends and colleagues have arranged to create The Ron Haylock Music Room at the Christel House School in South Africa.

Funded by contributions from Ron’s friends around the world, enough additional instruments and tutoring will be made available for the large number of children at the school, and in the dedicated music room there will be a memorial plaque with the inscription “The Ron Haylock Music Room” followed by an alphabetical list of names of every single donor, whatever their contribution so that the future generations of students, teachers and visitors at Christel House South Africa can be inspired by the legacy of a man who did so much for their school, had so many friends around the world and opened so many doors for young people during his lifetime.

Donations can be made via the JustGiving page at www.justgiving.com/ronhaylockmusicroom
