Paul Fox produces tribute to Fred Mason...
Bury fan, Paul Fox, recently presented two extraordinary canvases of former Club president Fred Mason to the club's Board and to Julie Mason, in tribute to Fred. The canvas which was given to Julie, Fred's wife, was also signed by the full squad.
Paul and his son Benjamin, presented the painting of Fred to CEO Glenn Thomas on behalf of the Board, prior to the game against Portsmouth at the JD Stadium. After the presentation Paul said 'As a lifelong Bury fan and now season ticket holder with my disabled son, Ben, I thought it would be a nice gesture to do a painting of Fred for his family and the Club. Benjamin and I could not support a better club than Bury FC, all the staff are amazing, and the players and Manager are brilliant.'
When asked about the canvases Paul said 'The canvases are mainly a hobby. Friends and family wanted some to start with, so then I opened a page on Facebook to see if they would sell. I get occasional orders but not enough to do it full-time and give up my job but I thoroughly enjoy creating them.'
The board would like to thank Paul for all of his time and effort spent on the canvases, they are fantastic. The Club's canvas of Fred will be on display in the Board of Directors room.
