A little about Tom Wilson and the Fund…

Tom Wilson, aged 22, died on the 9th of December 2015, after a training ground accident at his Hockey club Old Loughtonians. He suffered a traumatic subarachnoid brain hemorrhage after a blow to the head by a stick. As the family considered organ donation they were informed he signed up as a fresher at Nottingham Trent University, allowing Tom to selflessly donate his organs and tissue to help save and transform the lives of up to 50 people. His teammates who performed CPR helped save Tom’s organs enabling him to give the ultimate gift of life.

     

Sadly, two months after Tom died, his father Graham, a hockey writer and Daily Express Sports Journalist suddenly passed away, leaving behind his wife Lisa and daughter Pippa. Graham’s final wish was to keep Tom’s memory alive. The Tom Wilson Memorial Fund was set up to raise money for various donor organisations, concussion research and England Hockey related sporting charities. £2.00 from each £5.00 ticket sold will go to the Tom Wilson Memorial Fund, any donations would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks to the Camden Club, Andrew Hart, Love Parade and the other bands performing on the night, for supporting Tom’s charity.

LOVE PARADE

Love Parade The Band is a British pop rock band originally formed in 1985 in London by Rikki James (vocals), Pete Heaton (guitar), John Copp (bass), Jonathon Trevisick (drums) and Mark Butcher (keyboards). They gained a strong following in the late 1980s when they played to packed audiences at some top venues in  London, including Dingwalls, the Marquee (Wardour Street) and Camden Palace (now KOKO).

Just as record company interest was reaching its peak in 1988, the band members decided to go their separate ways. Thirty years later, in 2018, they reformed and are busy recording their first album. They’ve also started playing live gigs again, including supporting Madness at a private party in September 2021.
