Trib­ute to Cussins

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community Life - BY JOHN FISHER

A NEW £350,000, six-bed­roomed unit at Don­isthorpe Hall has been named in mem­ory of the late Manny Cussins, the care home’s for­mer chair­man and life-pres­i­dent.

Mr Cussins’s daugh­ter, Au­drey Reuben, and son, John Cussins, per­formed the open­ing cer­e­mony, un­veil­ing a plaque at the en­trance of the new unit, which was com­pleted this sum­mer.

Mrs Reuben said she was im­pressed with the new look of the home and praised the use of space in the lat­est suite of rooms. The new unit was partly funded by the Manny Cussins Trust.

John Cussins com­mented on the high-qual­ity re­fur­bish­ments made since his last visit some years ago and thought that his fa­ther would have been de­lighted.

Manny Cussins, a fur­ni­ture re­tailer, was best known for his chair­man­ship of Leeds United Foot­ball Club be­tween 1973-1983. He died in Oc­to­ber 1987 at the age of 82.
