Gordon donates another £500

THE St Austell Voice’s cartoonist Gordon Walker has donated another £500 to charity after the sales of cartoons from the Voice’s Picture That feature.

Mr Walker, a retired head teacher, has already donated £1,000 to local charities and last Saturday at half-time between the Sticker and Newquay match he was on hand to donate the latest £500 which has been raised to local charity Beth’s Inspiration.

Sue Abbott-Smith from the charity was on hand to accept the cheque and was delighted by the generosity of local people who had purchased the original cartoons created by Mr Walker.

Mrs Abbott-Smith said: “Many thanks to Gordon Walker for raising £500 for our charity, by selling his animated cartoon sport pictures.

“We are very grateful and this will go towards our goal this year, which is raising £25,000 to refurbish the teenager and young adult treatment rooms at The Royal Cornwall Hospital, Treliske.”

Gordon was delighted after raising more funds for local charities and added: “I want to say a big thank you to everyone that has purchased one of the cartoons. It is really appreciated and helps us support some great local charities.

“It is a real team effort every week and I couldn’t do the cartoons without the help of Gareth, who gives me the ideas and Paul, who supplies the photos which I base my cartoons on.”

The Voice still has several of Mr Walker’s cartoons available to buy at £25 for the originals, pop into the office to see which ones are still available.
