North Durham has many wonderful individuals who continually give so much to our community. Many of them quietly go about their tasks of raising funds, helping the less fortunate and being involved to make this a better place to live, without looking for any praise or gratitude.
Having travelled the world, I have had opportunities to witness firsthand, the challenges and turmoil of children in less fortunate countries. I wholeheartedly believe we should do what we can to help improve their little lives. You can imagine how pleased I was, when I learned of the work of one of our own residents, Malcolm Thornton.
