Thornton Sports mourn the loss of popular employee, Jonny Andrews

Jonny, who had been part of Thornton Sports for over 15 years, passed away unexpectedly last weekend.

Originally joining the company as a tufting machinery operative in 2000, Jonny had recently developed his skills to become a valued member of our artificial grass installation team.

Well-liked by all; he was a cheeky, witty, outgoing and fun-loving lad who was always happy to help others. Jonny loved his football and was a Clarets fan. He also enjoyed his cars, trips to Thailand and generally having a good time!

A crowdfunding page has been set up to help raise funds for his funeral:

The service will take place at St Bartholomew’s Church in Great Harwood on Wednesday 27th April at 12.30pm. Anybody who knew Jonny that would like to attend to pay their respects are more than welcome.

Taken too soon, Jonny was a lovely lad who will be sorely missed by us all.
