Kings Langley man raises hundreds for local charity after cleaning up the village he was brought up in as a way of giving back to his community.
Previously reported in KingsNews last month, Rhys Hughes, 25, took it upon himself to clean up Kings Langley to raise money for local charity, the Waterside Centre.
Rhys managed to raise an impressive £465 for the charity, who plan to put it towards a “magic table”, an interactive projection system with very simple cause and effect games which all of their service users can enjoy.
Rhys said: “I’m really happy with how it all went, and I can’t thank everyone enough who helped with the clean and who donated.
“Seeing how happy it made them at the Waterside Centre was great.”
Elaine Precious, Deputy Manager at the Waterside Centre, said: “We were thrilled that Rhys decided to support us and raised a massive £465, which has taken our fundraising total almost to the first thousand.
“We were happy to welcome him to the centre this week when he brought in the cash, and we presented him with a card which had been made by one of our service users and signed by us all, we cannot thank him enough.”
