Ernest Anthony Blount (Tony)
30th March 1963 ~ 22nd January 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 & try to 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 drinking.
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 bring back the Traffic Police that we have lost due to all the Government cut backs to our Polices Forces across the UK.
Also as a Brake Volunteer I like to raise money for the charity through The Tony Blount Foundation Charity Events which started in March 2014 at the Boom Bar in Hull City Centre.
Our new home for all future charity events are now held at the
Kingston Social Club in Hull
Finally, please help if you can, any way at all.
Sign our petition, buy our merchandise from the online shop, and come along to our annual charity nights if you are able, or simply press the JustGiving DONATE button on this page to give directly to Brake.
