Our friend Tony Smith, sadly passed away in November 2020, which was a big shock and massive loss to all that knew him.
Tony sadly left a wife and two young children. Whilst grieving, following the loss of a great husband and father, the family now face a battle with the Aegon Insurance , who are refusing to pay the life insurance as Tony died eight days before the policy clause ran out.
Tony was a loving father and husband and a well respected architect, who loved football and was a fan of Bolton Wanderers FC.
Tony played football for two five aside teams in Truro, where he was a very competitive and popular character.
Since Tony’s passing both teams have got together and have decided to put on an event in memory of Tony and to raise some much needed funds for his family.
We have arranged a charity football match against Plymouth Argyle Legends at 14:00 on Sunday 17th October, followed by a raffle/auction and social gathering in the bar at Trispen/St Erme Community Centre.
We will be selling raffle tickets both prior to the day and on the day of the game and social gathering.
We hope anyone that knew Tony in any capacity will join us for this event. If anyone is able to and would like to either donate a raffle prize big or small, buy raffle tickets or knows people who may be able to help make the day/evening a success such as local bands or entertainers willing to donate their time please do get in touch for this very worthy cause.
Please get in touch as donations will be gratefully received.
All proceeds made on the day will be donated to the family.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Such a wonderful man and such a tragic loss. Funny, generous and a huge heart of gold. My love and thoughts go out to Billie, Eva and Maya x
A fun-loving family man who lived life to the full.
