Get to know the people who make Tom Clarke Foundation what it is. Our team is an unbelievable source of information and we are ready to share our events, activities, and the ways for you to get involved.



Chair of the foundation

I have worked within financial services for over 30 years.  I sit on the PFS committee for Lancashire, Cumbria & Merseyside.


When Tom first received his diagnosis, the love and support that we, as a family received was very humbling.   The fund raising that followed gave Tom the idea of setting up a foundation that could help and support others going through a similar experience.  By launching the foundation, we can realise Tom's wishes and make a positive impact.  We value people's help and support and would love it if you could join us on this fundraising journey.



Hi my name is Gillian Clarke. I am a mother who lost her son, Tom Clarke, to an awful disease which robs many families of their loved ones. Our aims in setting up this charity are to try and help these sufferers and their families through very difficult times which hopefully have a better outcome for their families than it did for ours.

I have over 25 years’ experience in marketing communication and business development. Before this I had a professional career kicking an odd-shaped ball around as a former Northampton, England & British and Irish Lion rugby player.

I've known Scott since my childhood and had the privilege to know Tom as well. It was an honour to be be asked by Scott and Gill to become a Trustee of the foundation. I very much look forward to helping raise money for the charities that I know Tom was passionate about.



Hi I'm Gregg, a Chartered Accountant specialising in Healthcare. I spend my free time engrossed in all things rugby and can usually be found down at my local rugby club. Living on the edge of the Lake District means I also spend time exploring the fells with my dog.

I met Tom at Lancaster University where we instantly bonded over our love for rugby, and our chats previewing the next weekends action became a regular thing for the next 10 years. Tom quickly became one of my best friends and I am honoured to take his legacy forward. 




I am a Civil Servant working in the Cabinet Office. Outside of work, I am into all things crafty, particularly sewing my own clothes. I studied at Lancaster University, where I met Tom in our second year and we lived together in their third year of undergraduate studies.  We remained great friends ever since.



I have over 25 years experience in consulting, sales, finance and commercial roles and I am a Partner at KPMG.  I’m married to Sarah and have a daughter, Lily.  In my spare time I play golf as often as I can, have an Everton FC season ticket and we follow Lily around the north watching her play hockey. 


I met Tom in 2017 when I interviewed him for a role in my KPMG consulting team.  We hit it off instantly.  Over the next 4 years Tom became a valued member of the team and friend, and we shared many train journeys from Manchester to Preston talking about rugby, golf and putting the world to rights.
