Local Heroes - Seat Nomination Winners Jon Goodman

4 August 2020

🌟 LOCAL HEROES ALERT ⭐️

Towards the end of last year - we invited you all to suggest someone who deserved to be put in the spotlight and have a seat in our brand new auditorium named after them. We were truly overwhelmed by the response, with nominations coming from every part of Cornwall, and beyond.

We were just about to release the names of our deserved winners, when lockdown occured. So here we go again! Over the next few days, and ahead of us publicly launching our NAME A SEAT campaign and giving you a sneak peek of our new seats in the brand new auditorium, we'll be announcing our winners here.

First up is..... 🥁 drum roll 🥁 please........JON GOODMAN.

Nominated by many, Jon is a figurehead in his hometown of Newquay, supporting the community with a wide range of fundraising and charitable initatives. From spearheading the campaign to renovate Huer’s Hut to setting up his own version of DIY SOS where he helped a variety of local families and a school, Jon is passionate about bringing the community together and raising money for local charities.

Says Jon "To receive this accolade is amazing, it really means so much to have been nominated by members of the community, I don’t think there is a higher prize to win than to be recognised by the people you live amongst and this is just that. I’m still in shock about it and when I was first told, cried a lot with pride".

Congratulations Jon - we look forward to you taking a deserved seat in our new theatre.
