In summary:

Jonny is an experienced DJ, and has been running Unit 1 Entertainment for 20 years – booking musicians, DJ’s and entertainment for weddings, corporate events and parties, as well as pub quizzes.  Normally Unit 1 Entertainment would have around 10,000 bookings a year.but in March 2020 this was  tipped upside down.  But, Jonny decided to use his skills and expertise to create an element of fun and enjoyment for others.


Over the last 12 months, Jonny has completed the following –

  • Online quizzes
  • VE Day bike ride, dressed up and asking people to dress-up their houses
  • NHS/ Key Workers bike ride
  • Santa bike rides

In total they’ve cycled over 100 miles with their mobile bike disco, and raised over £26,000.

Overall, the grand total for ALL funds raised in the last 12 months is £46,000!


For Remembrance Sunday, they worked with fellow award-winners Trafford Veterans to provide all veterans with a cream tea delivered to them. They also had a member of Sale band providing live music for them on their doorsteps.


In the months to come, Jonny is looking ahead to supporting the Nags Head/ Poppies Cafe with their dementia meetings, helping to stimulate the minds of those suffering with dementia.
