A CHAR­ITY worker inspired school­child­ren about his work in Cen­tral Amer­ica.

Dun­can Dyson who works with street chil­dren in Gu­atemala spoke to the pupils at St Mary’s Pri­mary School in Old Amer­sham about the work of Street Kids Di­rect.

Teach­ing as­sis­tant Dawn Lam­min said: “Dun­can told us that Street Kids Di­rect have been us­ing its hands to help lots of chil­dren.”

St Mary’s was one of the schools in­volved with Ra­dio Christ­mas, which raised over £21,000 for the char­ity.

Mr Dyson was one of the founders of the char­ity in 2001 and for the most part, he now lives in Gu­atemala City.
