This is being set up for Tom Ronan Legacy who sadly left us all on Easter Monday 13.4.20 just a few days ago.   All of us who knew him loved this big wonderful man with a heart filled with happiness and time for everyone he was indeed a gentle giant.     

A talented artist, witty sketcher and writer, he had a following of many on all his social medias and in life at home, at his work places - everyone who came into contact with Tom Ronan had their lives changed by just knowing this man.   He would sit and talk to you pass the time of day with you, listen and help with your troubles and problems, he asked for nothing in return just that be kind, be nice and love always.  

We were out one day and I watched him from a distance he was talking to a blind man and I watched him take the man's arm, turn him around and walk back with him.  When I asked him "what was all that about" he said  "the man was lost, I just took him back to where he wanted to be"  and that was literally Tom in a nutshell, he took you to where you wanted to be.

I would like to raise donations towards his memorial for our lovely man for all family/friends to attend when the virus is over - then later an exhibition of his drawings and works so more people can know this wonderful man.  

Also a bench at Mousehole harbour where he often sat and sketched many times and loved the little seaside village with all his big heart.   A bench where others can sit, take in the view and get some peace listening to the sounds of the sea.

Additional note - my apologies I thought I entered £5,000 as a target and I cant change it after the page has been created.    The target should read £5,000.   Sorry everyone - although I suspect Tom would be chuckling at that.

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £70 million for bright ideas and good causes.
