Anthony was better known to locals as ‘Juggling Jim’ and sadly passed away on Monday 23rd January 2017. He was a much loved entertainer and has spent the majority of his life in King’s Lynn. Not much was known about the busker who lived in Nelson Street, but after appearing in a YouTube video last year, produced by students at the College of West Anglia, details about his past gave us a glimpse into his eventful life. Following his death tributes have been paid at the spot he would perform as well as online and in local papers.
The local community has gathered to pay their respects and, in his honour, we are launching a short project to raise money for charity. In collaboration with The Norfolk Brewhouse, limited edition bottles in memory of Juggling Jim will be available to purchase in-store and online shortly, with 100% of the profits going to charity. Versions of Moon Gazer Ruby, Gold and Amber will have special commemorative labels on to celebrate Anthony and the impact he had on the town.
(Charity to be confirmed soon)
