Some criticise the youth of today but in my experience there are a lot of very good young people out there who are willing to put something back into society.
Take Alex Tucker for instance. This young man lives just down the road from me. His grandmother died not long ago and was looked after by The Duchess of Kent Hospice which is run by The Duchess of Kent House Trust. He decided that he wanted to give something back to the charity and so he organised a Charity Football Match which took place yesterday at Padworth Village Hall.
He set this up in his own time. The players were sponsored and there was a barbecue and a raffle at the village hall for the spectators. This household had a vested interest as we directly or indirectly supplied four of the players in the yellow team and scored 5 goals as the yellow team ran out 8-1 winners.
It looks like the event has raised approximately £1,000 the Duchess of Kent House Trust. Well done Alex.
