Dear Sir,

I have watched with interest over a number of years, the donations made by Honest John to organizations and good causes on the town. Upon enquiring I learn that John raises over £20,000 each year, all of this amount being donated to the town and nothing kept for himself. This is an amazing achievement for one man, and shows an outstanding commitment to the community of Newton Aycliffe.

Surely John should be recognised with an award for his hard work.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we as residents and in some cases beneficiaries of John’s hard work, come together and press for some kind of official recognition for all Johns kindness to the community.

Kind regards

H Wren
