The Nick Alexander Memorial Trust award grants for musical equipment to community groups and small charities across the UK, particularly those representing the most disadvantaged and marginalised sectors of society, be that through poverty, physical or mental illness, disability, ethnicity or age.
The trust was established in memory of Nick Alexander who was killed in the terror attack at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris in November 2015, aged 35. He was working that night as the merchandise manager for Eagles of Death Metal. Nick was a vibrant and enthusiastic life-long music fan, and throughout the career that he loved he saw people all over the world brought together through a love of music.
We believe that music is a powerful tool in breaking down barriers and bringing people together and our mission is to continue Nick’s legacy by using music to positively impact people’s lives.
