A PORTRAIT of Dr David Walton and his wife Carole was unveiled in the Walton Community Care Centre on Wednesday.
The unveiling took place before the Cosgrove Care annual meeting.
Cosgrove chairman Colin Black said: “Donations from the Walton Foundation have sustained Cosgrove’s work over five decades, helping the organisation modernise, innovate and deliver a new generation of social care services.
“The Cosgrove Care board was delighted when David and Carole accepted our offer to become patrons of the Charity in recognition of their amazing contribution and to mark the occasion, commissioned the painting we are about to unveil.”
The fortunes of the charity had also been altered thanks to a substantial legacy donation from Stanley Frossman, known as DJ Jet Mayfair.
A picture and plaque have been erected in the Cosgrove offices in his memory.
A cheque for £2,000 was presented to chief executive Heather Gray by RBR Supplies managing director David Barnett.
As part of its 20th anniversary charities campaign, RBR chose Cosgrove as a charity partner.
