Good Neighbour Award

Winner: Kenneth Banfield

The snow hit Cornwall the night before Jane Brown was due at Treliske with her husband Malcolm.

He needed what turned out to be life-saving cancer surgery, but the weather meant they couldn’t travel.

Enter this year’s Good Neighbour – Richard Buck.

The 54-year-old got in touch after spotting Jane’s desperate appeal for a driver on Facebook. He arrived to collect the couple in his 4x4, with a staff nurse who needed to get to work.

Richard even extended the offer to other workers.
