Tom ap Rhys Pryce was robbed and killed on 12 January 2006 as he walked home from Kensal Green underground station to the home he shared with his fiancťe, Adele Eastman. He was 31 years old. Tom and Adele were due to marry in September of the same year. Tomís parents (John and Estella), Adele and Linklaters LLP (the law firm at which Tom worked) have established a registered charity (in the form of a trust) as a lasting memorial to Tom. Tom was a beneficiary of educational funding for which he was always grateful and one of Tomís Trustís goals is therefore to provide educational and vocational training opportunities to individuals who might not otherwise have access to them, in the hope that they too can achieve their potential and lead rewarding lives. Another goal is to help tackle the root causes of violent gang culture and violent street crime. In this way, the donations made to Tomís Trust are being used to ensure that as much good as possible comes out of Tomís tragic and senseless death.

The response to Tomís Trust to date has been overwhelming. We have now passed
our initial target of £2,000,000. These donations have
helped us to support a large number of very worthwhile projects. The Trustees
would like to express their heartfelt thanks to all the Trustís supporters and
donors. With continued support, Tomís Trust can continue to assist these, and
other, excellent initiatives and the Trustees welcome any contribution, no
matter how big or small, to help raise another million.
