Watford’s two-time former unified world heavyweight champion made a surprise visit to 316 St Albans Road on Sunday, January 30, to support a new community charity shop.
Ngorli, which was set up in 2017, helps local children to increase their ability to perform, achieve, and/or excel in scholastic activities.
Following the charity’s new shop opening, Rhoda Amexado, CEO of Ngorli, said: “I would like to thank everyone for their support. I was so pleased that Mayor Peter Taylor and Anthony Joshua came to open my new business.
“We are also really grateful for all of the support from our local councillor, Dawn Allen-Williamson. I know that working together we can help people in the community to achieve their potential.”
Anthony Joshua thanked councillor Dawn Allen-Williamson for inviting him to the event and said: “It’s my intention to continue to engage with the Watford Community, where I was born.
“Watford is where my heart is, and I will always do whatever I can to support the community.”
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, added: “Rhoda and her team are already making a real difference.
“I know that their popular Saturday School has helped lots of young people. I hope that this new premises will help them go from strength-to-strength.”
