Hugh Grant has donated a further £5,000 to a charity which provides free plumbing and heating work for the elderly (PA)
The founder of a charity that provides free plumbing and heating services for the elderly and vulnerable has hailed Hugh Grant as “godly” after the actor donated £5,000 to the cause’s national launch on GoFundMe
James Anderson said Grant’s donation, which has now been verified by GoFundMe, will buy Christmas presents for at least 397 children this year as Depher extends its services beyond making sure people have heating and hot water.
“Because of Hugh, there’s going to be 397 children this Christmas who are going to have Christmas presents in the morning (and) there are families that are going to have meals on Christmas Day,” the 54-year-old told the PA news agency.
“One family would have woken up to two tin of beans (and) a piece of bread, but because of Hugh, they’re going to wake up to a full Christmas dinner.”
