Dear Sir,

When Alex’s school, Vane Road, closed due to the Coronavirus he decided to keep himself busy by helping the resident’s of Rose Lodge and Defoe Court care homes.

Alex arranged a raffle and sold the tickets to family, friends and neighbours, raising £320, which was shared between the two homes.

Not content with that feat, he moved on to assist St. Teresa’s Hospice and on the 19th September completed eight laps of the Woodham running track and raised a fantastic £550 from family, friends and neighbours.

Alex would like to thank all his family, friends and neighbours for their support; Gwen for helping to count the money and to Euan and Amy for their encouragement whilst in training.

Well done Alex, we are so proud of you.

Love from Mam, Dad and Grandparents
