Graham Cole OBE – Ambassador
Having entered the entertainment industry in 1974, I have been fortunate
to have a successful career which has covered all genre of my beloved profession. Theatre has been dominant, but a spell in uniform playing PC Tony Stamp on ITV in The BIll for over 20 years inspired so much more!
Over 30 years with Childline/NSPCC, coveted my relationship with our Police service, continuing to support many initiatives and I am honoured to be a member of NARPO.
I am an Ambassador for both Voluntary Police Cadets and the blue light charity PTDS 999 and also for London and south east scouting. I held the position of King Rat of The Grand Order of Water Rats and am a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Carmen. I love my City of London and am very proud to have been asked to become an Ambassador to Sir John Cass’s Foundation and was honoured to receive an OBE from Her Majesty the Queen.
I look forward to the next chapter?
