Music has been a large part of Mark’s life in prison and a source of real comfort and solace in an otherwise bleak environment. In organising various events, Mark has helped raise over £1250 for Shooting Star Children’s Hospice, and almost £1000 for the Howard League for Penal Reform, through his music. Here are some of the pieces his family have shared with us over the years.

“Mark seemed more than happy to look after his father and I believe he deemed it to be far more important than the self-indulgent pleasures London offered. I’ve always been impressed by Mark’s entrepreneurial streak, and his diversity of interests. His success in making a name for himself in business and technology, with such creative and original ideas, is truly astonishing considering he has been balancing this with a full time degree and the long term care of his father. His ambition, drive and creativity allowed him to do all this.
Mark is generous and selfless and goes to great lengths to help people, particularly his friends. I trust Mark absolutely and completely.”
