Ron sadly passed away in November 2020 and to mark this anniversary, Edith his wife and their three sons (Steve, Ritchie and Alan) decided to organise a Tribute Night to celebrate Ron’s life. The Tribute Night raised over £2,700 for APF and featured appearances from The Dust Raisers, The Ritchie Bee Band and Alan Bee who performed a solo tribute.
Dad loved music and parties but most of all, family and friends. Our memorial gig was a combination of all of those and a celebration of his life and everyone’s love for him.
To share the stage with my brothers in honour of Dad was incredibly special. The night was a huge success and the money we raised exceeded all our expectations but we also raised awareness of such a valuable charity.
It was fitting to have it on Ron's first anniversary, we had tickets printed and charged £5 for entry into the venue. Our sons were the entertainment for the evening in their bands and we also arranged a raffle. The evening was a great success, we raised quite a lot of money but also an awareness of the illness
