2015 Awards Ceremony
H G Wells Events Centre, Woking Friday 20th November 2015
Over 240 guests, including The Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey, Michael More-Molyneux; the Mayor and Mayoress of Woking; Mayors & Consorts of Elmbridge and Runnymede; Jonathon Lord MP; Major Darke, the commanding officer of 251 Signal Squadron, Michael Aspel and Bobby Davro attended the prestigious Surrey Dolphins Swimobility Awards lunch at the H G Wells Conference and Events Centre , Woking on Friday 20th November 2015.
The event, organised and wonderfully managed by Theresa Fuoco BEM was devised to recognise the achievements of individual swimmers, how they overcame specific difficulties and met personal goals and in addition to thank the hard-working carers, volunteers, drivers, and soldiers (251 Signal Squadron), without whom the charity could not function.
The afternoon began with an opening address by Surrey Dolphins committee member Professor Moreton Moore, followed by the appearance of Michael Aspel and his famous “Red Book” to give a “This is your Life” history of Surrey Dolphins, which began in 2002 with Theresa Fuoco, a single volunteer, one wheelchair and 10 disabled swimmers.
A delicious 3 course lunch followed, during which Bobby Davro kept everyone highly entertained by jokes and impersonations.
Distinguished guests presented awards to our swimmers to recognise their individual achievements and to thank the valuable contribution of the volunteers.
An award a was presented to Major Darke, commanding officer, to thank the great efforts of members of 251 Squadron.
Corporal Paul Colling, who introduced 251 Squadron to the Surrey Dolphins charity and requested army volunteers to attend swimming sessions was presented with a special award for his devotion and continuous commitment.
