Golden Wellie award: Latest winner is revealed!
Jimmy Cricket announced the latest winner of the Golden Wellie award at a regular charity event in Rochdale.
Nathan Birks (pictured above with Jimmy) received the prestigious accolade in recognition of all his charity work.
The presentation took place at one of Jimmy’s popular ‘jam’ nights in Rochdale.
Local, national and on occasions even international entertainers perform for nothing at the monthly event.
It takes place at St Vincent’s RC Parish Centre in Norden.
Famous comedian Jimmy and his great showbiz friend Eric Devereaux host the event alternately.
Jimmy has nicknamed those who regularly support these evenings as ‘Jimmy’s Jammers’.
At every event, there is a raffle and refreshments, with all proceeds going to a chosen charity.
Jimmy said on social media: “Great night at September’s Jam night at St Vincent’s.
“We presented the Golden Wellie to Nathan Birks, for all his Charitable work! ”
Jimmy created the Golden Wellington, based on his trademark wellington boots, several years ago.
It is known for short as Golden Wellie.
Jimmy uses it to acknowledge a good deed or significant contribution to a community.
