Musicians Giving Back: Marillion Raising Funds For Thames Hospice in Memory of Writer Tim Hall

Rock band Marillion, best known for the 80’s hits “Kayleigh” and “Lavender,” are fundraising for Thames Hospice in memory of music writer Tim Hall who passed away in June.

“As many of you will be aware, The Guardian newspaper gave our latest album F E A R a stunning 5 star review.  This was written by Tim Hall who tragically died from cancer a few weeks ago.  As a tribute and thank you to Tim, we are going to send all the money raised to the Hospice that looked after Tim during his final days,” Marillion said on the JustGiving site where people can donate directly.

“All readers need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to donate £5 or more at the band’s JustGiving page, and include their full name and email address (only visible to the band),” The Slough & South Bucks Observer reported. “One donation will give that person a ticket for the draw. On July 31, the band will pick a lucky winner at random. The current total stands at more than £2,000.”
