The Tony Blount Foundation was set up on March 30th 2013, which was to coincide with what would have been Tony Blount's 50th birthday. Tony was killed by a drink driver on January 22nd 2006, when the speeding car ran down Tony, his brother Stephen Meara-Blount, and their brother-in-law Mike Mortimer. The drunk driver was a 19 year old man from Hull, who was almost two and a half times over the legal drink drive limit, and was traveling at 65mph when the car struck them. Tragically, Tony died literally as he fell to the ground. Stephen suffered serious multiple injuries which have today, left him with disabilities. Mike, thankfully, suffered only serious bruising.

On the last Friday of every March, since 2013, The Tony Blount Foundation hosts charity events to raise awareness to the dangers of drink driving, and to help keep the memory of Tony alive. But as Steve is a volunteer for the road safety charity, Brake, these ever popular charity events raise money for the charity organisation, helping others who have been through the same tragedies of losing loved ones and serious injuries on our roads.

The Tony Blount Foundation is NOT a charity, nor claims to be. We operate solely to raise much needed funds for Brake, and our own personal way to keep fighting to raise awareness, and through the public's generosity in donating items, prizes and gifts and their time, we are always able to hold fantastic annual charity events and raise money.
