Architects Fans Over $41K In Tom Searle's Memory


(Metal Hammer) Architects fans have raised more than $41,000 for Martlets Hospice in Hove in memory of the late Tom Searle. The guitarist died of cancer aged 28, following a three-year battle with the disease late last month. Since then, more than 1000 donations have been made to a JustGiving campaign set up in his name from fans across the globe.

Martlets Hospice say it's the "biggest response" the hospice has ever seen to an online fundraising page. The charity's income generation director Sally Brighton says: "Whilst the fundraising is amazing, we cannot lose sight of the tragedy of Tom's death. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans at this desperately sad time.

"We hope that all who loved him will find some comfort in seeing how many people have been moved to donate to Martlets. It is truly humbling. The funds raised will help Martlets to continue providing hospice care for local people and their families when they need us most. We are extremely grateful for everyone's support." here.
