Richard Hardwick and John Perkins from Woodchester and Nailsworth Support Group were specially recognised for the thirty years of support they have given to the charity.
Kirsty Bradbury, Fundraising Engagement Officer, Cobalt said ‘Cobalt volunteers are vital to making our work and events a success. Richard and John have worked tirelessly and helped to raise thousands of pounds for our charity. They are truly inspirational. Each one of our volunteers has a story to tell, including some having used our services. The money they raise helps fund the work we do across the county to help local people affected by cancer, dementia and other life-limiting conditions’.
Events John and Richard have helped make happen include Arthur’s Spring Stroll, a 7 mile walk named after Arthur McTiffin, close pal of the two men and local resident of Nailsworth. The pair also masterminded fundraising at the Gloucestershire Steam and Vintage Extravaganza for Cobalt. The show is one of the biggest of its kind in the country organised entirely by volunteers. Collectively they raised over £13,000 last year.
