Candles on the Cobb are pleased to announce Quinnell Candles will be sponsoring the 5000 tea lights for our main event.
This will be held on Aug 30th 2015.
All the candles will be hand made by the Quinnell family team headed up by Nicola Quinnell wife of former Wales & British Lions star Scott Quinnell.
Scott is a Make a wish uk ambassador which is Cotc 2015’s chosen national charity. Adrian Wood from the Cotc team found the connection and made a call to Quinnell Candles.
“I made the call to Quinnell Candles and luckily it was Nicola who picked up the phone we got chatting , and Nicola could see the connection straight away”, after several emails & phone calls we arranged a meeting (8th April at the Quinnell family home & workshop).
Mike Higgs and Myself made the Trip up to Wales and met Nicola, Scott & family. They were superb hosts and we enjoyed a look round the workshop met the staff and the Wales & Southwest regional Make a wish fund raising representative Delanwy Arthur.
Scott & Nicola will also be attending the main event on Aug 30th and want to take an active part in setting up and lighting the candles.
Scott currently works for Sky Sports as a Rugby Pundit and has also been featuring in Sky’s TV hit show Stella.
