Creative Award nominations
Wayne volunteers for our new support service; ACTivate Your Life - Affected by Cancer as an ACTivate Your Life Course Presenter and as a Champion of our services.
Having gone through cancer and successful treatment, Wayne really benefitted from attending an ACTivate Your Life course himself, and he wanted others to receive the same benefits that he did.
Wayne has a great presence and tone. His presentation style is personal, like he's talking to you and only you. And he's a great story teller!
Beyond being a course presenter he’s also been in front of the camera explaining why he attended the course and why others should sign up. He was even filmed when presenting for the first time and is now a case study for volunteering.
He’s visited a support group with the Advice Team, taken leaflets to a number of community centres, spoken on local radio, and he’s really active on social media.
Wayne truly is an asset to Tenovus Cancer Care. Recently, his wife was diagnosed with cancer but he still continues to help us spread our message of support.
Jane is a member of the Rhiwbina Friends of Tenovus Cancer Care fundraising group, volunteers on our Cardiff North Choir welcome desk, helps the community fundraising team and Sing with Us teams in the office with administration, and coordinates and helps with numerous collections and events.
Over the last six years Jane has selflessly given her time and creative energy to the charity. She welcomes choristers to rehearsals each week with a big smile, supports us in the office and helps at many fundraising events.
Jane has organised sell-out fashion shows, creating amazing themes and engaging with local businesses. She handpicks the clothes and has given confidence to members of the choir who walk as models. This year, Jane is planning to hold a fashion show over two nights to celebrate Tenovus Cancer Care’s 75th Birthday.
Jane paints beautiful floral pictures to be auctioned or used as raffle prizes. She not only initiates new projects but supports everyone else in their fundraising activities.
Since being diagnosed with breast cancer Jane has been an ambassador for cancer related issues; recently speaking about her experience for a Tenovus Cancer Care video.
Jane is quite simply a ray of sunshine. She’s a compassionate lady who is always smiling and a real support to everyone she chats to. She is uplifting and kind, and an absolute asset to the charity.
Tony is a Fundraiser and member of the Sing with Us Swansea choir. Fundraisers like Tony are so important to us. They’re a voice in their community promoting awareness of the work we do, and raise the vital funds we need to keep our services running.
Tony is a great fundraiser and once met he’s never forgotten! He’s been a member of the Swansea choir from the start and works tirelessly to promote the work of the charity and raise funds.
He’s a valued and enthusiastic tenor and a cake baker extraordinaire whose good humour never fails to raise spirits.
Tony has organised, starred in and directed numerous charity shows which have raised tens of thousands of pounds. It’s fair to say he’s a local legend, yet he’s humble and doesn’t seek praise. Tony also supports other members’ fundraising by selling or raffling cakes he’s made, or by donating his paintings for prizes. He also donates money from his own work to help others reach their fundraising targets.
Tony is a real character with many talents which he uses to support Tenovus Cancer Care.
