I've know Richard for 7 years, he is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He dedicates his time to making enjoyable activities and he has a desire to make sure his friends and family are happy, if they aren't he always is happy to talk to see what the issue is. Nothing shadows his morals; Richard always does right by people and never lets them down. He's truly a lovely person, this is demonstrated by activities that he is not obligated to participate in but feels he must be involved in. He is regularly active in his church and wants to make constant progression. Every Thursday Richard is seen to be involved in helping people who suffer from Dementia just by visiting them on regular basis, talking to them and trying to form relationships. Last year Richard visited Lourdes as a red cap helper, he made sure that everyone had a chance to visit the Pilgrimage of our Lady of Lourdes regardless of their disability. Ever since he got a camera he has selflessly provided a fantastic photography service without charge. He owns his own studio equipment and has regular costumers. Whatever the task he always agrees to help out and he does it off his own back for free. Most recently he was approached by actor who was looking to get into an agency but needed portrait. Thanks to Richard Sutton this actor has a main part in two plays both coming up next month. Finally to conclude Richard has always made a fantastic contribution to society and this is why he deserves to be a Torch bearer.
