DO­NA­TION: Check­ing in for hol­i­day fun

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

CO­ME­DIAN Dave Lee was pre­sented with a cheque for more than £800 at Ash­ford’s Park Mall shop­ping cen­tre on Mon­day. Shop­pers made do­na­tions to the co­me­dian’s Happy Hol­i­days char­ity while tak­ing their young­sters to see Fa­ther Christ­mas in his grotto, at the shop­ping cen­tre at Christ­mas. Cen­tre man­ager Paul Stone said it was the first time Mr Lee had been avail­able to col­lect the cheque since the busy pan­tomime sea­son. The money will go to­wards pro­vid­ing hol­i­days of a life­time for sick, dis­abled and dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren in Kent, tak­ing them and their fam­i­lies to places in­clud­ing Dis­ney­world and La­p­land. “It’s a lo­cal char­ity that helps un­der-priv­i­leged kids and their fam­i­lies in this area and we think it’s a wor­thy cause to sup­port,” said Mr Stone.
