Russ, seen here with Bristol Councillor Peter Abraham,

Was extremely proud of the Variety Sunshine Coach

Above: Richard Hope-Hawkins helped Russ set up the Cancer Fund., He also devised, produced and took part in all of the gala shows.

Born in Bristol, Richard’s career has taken many paths. An actor, TV presenter, writer & journalist, newsreader, reviewer of films and music.

In February 2009, Richard  was nominated by friends for an honorary centenary degree in recognition for his dedication to  many charity,

and awareness campaigns, and helping numerous other individuals. Richard has recently been given a walk on  part in  a  new “Bollywood”

 

film  called “Veer”.  Filming starts in  Bath & London later this year.  

 

Grateful thanks to Richard for the photographs below, that pay tribute to some of the many stars, who over eleven gala shows, gave their time

to perform and entertain for Russ’s good cause.
