Raymond Dainton receiving a Civic Medal from the Town Mayor, Councillor Miss Samantha Watkin and the Harold Daniels Memorial Trophy from the Leader of Westhoughton Town Council, Councillor Arthur Price, in recognition of his outstanding charity fundraising.

Over the last 30 plus years, Raymond has raised over £100,000 for Birtenshaw School and Firwood School, and he is still fundraising.  Raymond is a very worthy recipient of both the Civic Medal, which is the town's highest honour, and the Harold Daniels Memorial Trophy.
