For several years I was a member of the Hull University’s Business Club which met at the Uni 3 times per annum. Hull Uni sponsored Hull City foot ball Club in those days, and I personally thought it was a worthy idea, telling the public that the Uni was not just a place for posh or brainy people but for the community. Uni sponsorship was in difficulties, most Dons wanted to carry on; but the principal was sceptical and his decision was that the £40,000 support should be £4000 from business, and £36,000 from Uni . We were pleased to help and donated the £4000. It kept the Uni with their emblem on the shirts of City players in the public eye, and reminded the young people of Hull that we, the community were all in it together.
