Story

Legacy for a Legend is a Named Fund that has been set up in partnership with Oxfordshire Community Foundation in memory of my late husband Paul Thompson.

 

Paul a devoted father was a healthy, fit and hardworking person. Paul’s main passion was playing bass in 2 local bands and he also enjoyed many sports and activities, especially playing football on regular basis, he loved being part of a team.

 

Sadly on 17th July 2012 Paul suddenly collapsed during a football training session. Tragically, despite every effort made by both Paul’s football colleagues and Paramedics,  Paul could not be saved. At only 38 years old Paul died from a sudden cardiac event.

 

Through various fund raising projects our main aims are:

-To give musical groups and individuals the help they need to achieve their musical dreams.

 

-Funds raised will also be used within local communities around Oxfordshire for various music and sport related projects.

 

-To work with football clubs to ensure that they are able to assist footballers in a medical emergency on the pitch.

 

Many thanks in advance for your support
