A manager at the Derby Co-op, he channelled his organising abilities and love of music into persuading some of the biggest names in music to come to Derby at favourable rates (sometimes without charge at all) to perform at concerts, either in the Co-Op Central Hall or the Grand Theatre Babington Lane, which raised over the years more than £6,000. His greatest coup was to persuade Gracie Fields (then the greatest of super-stars) to appear in 1938.
