  This year's Tony Blount Foundation Charity Event was definitely a special one. This year, we have a lovely lady called Joanne (pictured above) from Hull, who is running the Jayne Tomlinson half marathon on June 10th at 9.00am especially for The Tony Blount Foundation, and we couldn't be more proud! All money raised will be added the money already raised at our previous charity event, to the road safety charity, Brake, who work tirelessly helping victims of road death and serious injury.

To sponsor Joanne for the Half Marathon, please click on her picture above, and you will be redirected to her personal Facebook page. Please help if you can! 

The total raised at the 2018 Tony Blount Foundation Charity Event raised just over £700 which is making it's way to Brake as we speak. But the final total is estimated to reach about £1,200 with the pledges made to Joanne's sponsored half marathon.

The 2018 Tony Blount Foundation was a special one, especially for Tony's family & friends.

It was held at The Station Inn on Beverley Road in Hull. It was special because the Station Inn was the first pub that Tony and his brother Stephen Meara-Blount first began drinking in together when Tony was 18 years old. But it was also the final pub that they drank in, along with their brother in law Mike Mortimer. Because that was the very early hours of Sunday 22nd January 2006, and as some people already know, it was after leaving these premises that Tony was tragically killed when a drink driver ran all three of them down.

Stephen invited the orthopaedic surgeon who was able to save his left leg and right arm, after the fear of amputation. Mr. Hemant K. Sharma attended the charity event as Stephen's guest of honour and after both said a few words on the stage, Stephen presented Mr. Sharma with a bottle of champagne, and a huge thank you.
