Having lived next door to the Hospice for 27 years the Hospice has always been close both physically and emotionally. In 2016 Tony chatted to neighbour and good friend Danny Wilson about doing something to help raise funds. They decided on charity Ball in 2017, which was hugely successful and became a permanent fixture until the 2020 event which became a casualty of the pandemic amongst other things of course and are now planning 2021’s event.
Tony Nunn was invited to become a Patron in 2018. Tony says “This was indeed a great honour and one I was extremely proud to accept. I shall commit myself whilst ever able to assisting the Hospice in whichever way I can, the hospice needs us all now more than ever.”
Tony comes from a Sheffield background and his family business being Redgates Toy Shop established 1857. The business was sold very skilfully in the late 80s by his father and Tony set up their own distribution of toys. The business is still going strong and Tony’s son Patrick is now 5th generation.
“I wish all concerned health and happiness and let us strive to keep our wonderful institution in good standing for years to come”
