Alston Koch Supports UK Autism Foundation Fundraising Project

Australian star Alston Koch who was born in Sri Lanka has thrown his musical weight behind a new autism charity, the UK Autism Foundation. The new charity will launch £10 million fundraising project. The Patron of the charity is well known British parliamentarian who has campaigned for autism in the House of Commons, Lee Scott MP.
 Speaking from Australia, Alston Koch told the world’s media: ‘It gives me the greatest pleasure & I am delighted to support the work of the new autism charity, the UK Autism Foundation.Autism is a very serious issue all over the world and children & well as adults need better monitoring, provision and care.
 I am very happy to support the auction at the very first Redbridge Community Dinner & Auction scheduled to be held on Saturday 12th July at All Saints Hall at Woodford Green in Essex, by sending the UK Autism Foundation signed copies of my Murali song, dedicated to the world’s number one spin bowler Muttiah Muralidaran. The song is now officially a collectors’ item.
 I gather that the UK Autism Foundation plan to auction The Muttiah Muralidaran Collection which includes a signed cricket ball from the World Champion.
 This indeed is a very important & worthy cause and I urge fellow artists, musicians & entertainers across the globe to support the work of the UK Autism Foundation who want to help the poor not only in Britain but also in Africa and Asia where there are so many families with autism who are below the poverty line
 I wish the Autism Foundation all success,‘ he said.
 Alston Koch is flying down to the island of Sri Lanka to participate in a non-stop Carnivale of Music called the ‘Hikkaduwa Beach Fest 2008,’ from 30th July to the 3rd of August. The World’s greatest DJ’s and ‘qualified’ exponents of dance/soul music including Alston Koch will be involved in this huge music event on the island of Sri Lanka.
 His ‘Murali’ song dedicated to the world’s number one bowler, is even doing well in Japan. Alston will also be headlining concerts in Thailand.
