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 fiancée, Adele Eastman. He was 31 years old. Tom and Adele were due to marry in September of the same year. Tom's 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. One of Tom's Trust's 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. In this way, the donations made to Tom's Trust are being used to ensure that as much good as possible comes out of Tom's tragic and senseless death.

The response to Tom's Trust to date has been overwhelming. We have now raised
funds in excess of £1,500,000. 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 Trust's supporters and
donors. With continued support, Tom's 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.
