Charlie Doherty

I was so heartened the other day (14th Jan) by a news item on TV – of Charlie, now 11, but who from the age of 4 has been asking all friends and relations not to give him presents – but to give money to charities instead. After all, he said to the microphone and camera – we don’t need it, we have so much, and so many have so little. Peoples’ faces light up, he said. Mary’s Meals is his favourite charity of the moment. And even between birthdays and Christmas, he is busy washing cars etc to raise money for charity. So far he has raised £15,000. What an achievement! Well done Charlie.
