Tom said " It has been a real privilege to perform on behalf of such a worthwhile cause. Andrea, and all at the Toma Fund do an amazing job, and I am delighted to have been able to help. When Sue Lawrence asked me to help, I was delighted to be able to say yes! Andrea and Sue know, I will be pleased to hear from them if they feel I can be of help in the future."
Sue Lawrence, Fundraising Assistant, said "Thank you for performing yesterday. It was amazing, you have a talent there, and definitely have a future in singing. Andrea rang last night to say they had already counted £1,600 and hadn't finished counting the last pennies! That was all down to you."
And subsequently on Toma Fund website -
"Another HUGE thank you to Mr Tom Wyllie for helping us raise a fantastic £1,830 at our Eldon Square collection over Christmas. Tom sang his little heart out for Toma Fund all day and had the crowds stand back in amazement; this is quite simply because he is AMAZING."
The Christmas shoppers really seemed to appreciate Tom's performance, with many taking the time to stop and listen. Tom would like to thank everyone who bought his CD; he gave over £100 to the Toma Fund from the sales. He would also like to thank all the people who stopped to offer kind words of encouragement, and of course to all who gave so generously to the Toma Fund.

Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, performed today at Eldon Square, helping to raise funds for Rotary Club, Newcastle-upon-Tyne West. They are still counting the money! People took a welcome break from their Christmas shopping as they listened to him sing. He sprinkled some seasonal songs amongst some more classical songs - "Isabel", "Nella Fantasia" and a host of Musical Theatre favourites. "Bring Him Home" proved so popular he was asked to sing it four times, during a ninety minute set! Tom would like to thank the many people who donated to a good cause and stopped to wish him well. He would also like to thank the many people who bought his CD "crescendo" and hopes that they enjoy listening.
So many people stopped to offer feedback. One listener commented - "I could hear him singing and I had to rush up, because I thought it must be Joe McElderry! But it's not it's Tom, and he's even better!"
Another came and said how much she loves Alfie Boe, and when she heard "Bring Him Home", she came to check it wasn't him!
