Richard Burton (right) has raised over £190,000 for Leukaemia Research after losing his 14 year old granddaughter, Sara, to the disease back in 1996. The profits made on the sale of his Rupert and other badges (including those listed below) go to this and closely related charities.

Lloyd Scott (left) first made the news in 2002 when he donned a diving suit to complete the London Marathon.

Richard has teamed up with Lloyd and says, "Lloyd has experienced the trauma of having Leukaemia himself and since then has worked tirelessly to raise millions for research".

Through selling the Australian set, Richard has presented Lloyd with £3,000 to help research into the illness. They are planning a fresh venture this year. Richard has designed a new set of Golly badges to commemorate Lloyd's achievements including his walk through Loch Ness in his now famous diving suit.

During July 2004, in recognition for all his hard work in raising funds for various Leukaemia charities, Richard was invited to one of the Queen's Garden Parties. He and his wife had a wonderful time and it sounds as if they were treated like royalty themselves. It was a golorious day weatherwise and he says it is a day he will remember forever.
