A children’s charity has received a cash boost thanks to a generous St Albans man.
Great grandfather Frank Clark has raised £245 for Dreamflight, which takes children with serious illness or disability on holiday to Orlando, Florida.
For the last 20 years, Mr Clark has decorated his house in Vicarage Close at Christmas time, and for the last three years he has raised money for good causes.
This Christmas he had hoped to raised £200 for the charity, and he was thrilled to exceed this total.
The 79-year-old told the Herts Ad: “I had a snow machine this time and the children loved it.
