Fundraising for ‘Nicky’s seat’
Nick passed away earlier this year aged 46
A friend of popular Scarborough man Nick Earnshaw is fundraising to have a seat dedicated to him and his achievements.
A friend of popular Scarborough man Nick Earnshaw has decided to raise money to “remember Nicky and his work” . Maggie Short, a friend of Nick and his family, would like to have a seat placed opposite South Cliff Post Office dedicated to Nick and his achievements.
Earlier this year tributes were paid to Nick, who passed away on April 22, aged 46. He was well known for a campaign he launched in 1998 to have a crossing installed on Filey Road, at the junction with Westbourne Grove and Prince of Wales Terrace. After five years of determination, 10,000 signatures and the backing of MP David Blunkett, his dream became a reality.
Maggie said: “Nicky was a remarkable young man, stubborn and determined but loved and admired by all who knew him. With the help of family and friends we would like to have a seat dedicated to him. We need to raise £1,500 and hope to have reached this target by the anniversary of Nicky’s death next year.”
Funds can be donated at the Skipton Building Society with reference ‘Nicky’s seat’.
