We're here to raise awareness to the carnage caused by drink drivers
and to help raise money for the UK road safety charity BRAKE
Tony was killed when a speeding car driven by a 19 year old drunk driver collided into three of us as we made our way home in the early hours of January 22nd 2006.
Our brother-in-law Mike Mortimer was also injured. Tony suffered severe head trauma, and was technically dead when he hit the ground. I suffered serious multiple injuries as I was thrown into the car's windscreen, onto the roof, and eventually coming to a painful thud down onto the road.
The aim of The Tony Blount Foundation website is to raise much needed awareness to the dangers of drinking and driving, and the terrible injuries and death suffered by the countless innocent victims on our roads every single day. I became a volunteer to the UK Road Safety Charity BRAKE & help others who have suffered the same fate as our family did/do, and to help in the case of significantly reducing the UK's legal drink driving limit similar to the rest of Europe, or to see a "Zero-Tolerance' to drinking and driving altogether. Not A Drop. If that was the case, then there would be NO excuse for taking the risk and driving your car home after a night at the pub, or restaurant and wondering if you are still 'safe' to drive after a drink or two.
Our laws need changing, and they need changing now! How many more innocent lives must be lost and seriously altered due to a drink driver? Please help us to make that difference and sign our petition (see tabs at top of this page) calling on the Government to act now on this issue.
Also as a Brake Volunteer I like to raise money for the charity through The Tony Blount Foundation by selling items on our Online Shop page. Wristbands, Key rings, Pens, Car Window Stickers, Mugs and T-Shirts, and also several CD albums performed by me.
March 2014 saw our first charity night at Boom Bar in Hull, one of many regular events we'll be holding annually on the last Friday of every March.
So please help if you can. Sign our petition, buy our merchandise, and come along to our annual charity nights is you are able, or simply press the JustGiving DONATE button on this page to give directly to Brake.
