As a proud sponsor of the HFoM, it was a pleasure and a privilege for us at Queenswood to work alongside Tom. His passion for musical excellence, his creativity and personal warmth were truly inspirational. He will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his partner, family and friends at this difficult time.
