East Lancashire Hospice

Kick start funding

Blackburn Martial Arts and Kickboxing club in Lower Darwen have raised £310 to mark Professor Tony Smith's 50 years in the Nippon Dai Budo Kai.

The Hospice is close to the clubs heart of both Professor Tony Smith and Simon Jones, who knew people who were cared for at the hospice.

Professor Tony Smith said: “I’ve known people in the hospice and it is an important part of that time in their lives. 

"I had a dear friend who passed away there just before Christmas and I just think the hospice is such an important part of the community.”

Thank you Tony and the rest of the club.
