Tom ap Rhys Pryce was robbed and killed on 12 January 2006 as he walked home from Kensal Green underground station. He was a 31 years old qualified lawyer who worked for Linklaters PLC. He was engaged to be married in September of that year. Tomís parents, his fiance and LinklatersLLP established a registered charity (in the form of a trust) in memory of Tom. Tom was a beneficiary of educational funding for which he was always grateful. One of Tomís Trustís goals is therefore to work with our partner organisations to provide educational and vocational training opportunities to those 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. All donations made to Tomís Trust are used to ensure that as much good as possible ensues from his tragic and senseless death.

The response to Tomís Trust to date has been overwhelming. Since the Charity
was set up, we have raised nearly £2 million. These donations have helped us to
support a large number of very worthwhile charitable projects to help
disadvantaged children and young people within the London Boroughs. 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.
