TWO Boston charity workers have been given national recognition for their work with the local branch of Macmillan Cancer Support.
In a special presentation held at the BBC gardener’s World Live show in the NEC Arena, Birmingham, the two volunteers were given their awards.
Adrian Reynolds, honorary treasurer to the Boston and District Fundraising Committee, was presented with the Douglas Macmillan Award by Macmillan Cancer Support. The award is given to volunteers who represent and speak up for Macmillan to help raise money, promote its charitable purpose, influence the development of cancer services, win corporate support or gain media coverage.
”It is a great honour to be recognised this way, but I am sure this award acknowledges the commitment of the Boston Committee as a whole,” said Adrian, who in his eight years in the role has seen the committee raise more than £482,000. He also arranges the annual Golf Am-Am competition and plays an active role on the Ball and Race Night sub-committees.
Sue Tunnard, of Wigtoft, was presented with the Platinum Long Service Award in recognition of her 35 years’ service on the Boston and District Committee. Sue’s work includes organising the annual Tesco collection, co-organising the monthly Macmillan Ladies Luncheon Club and the annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
