Schoolboy sells his toys to donate money to children’s ward

Schoolboy Tendai Nengoma (11 years old) sold his old toys to donate the proceeds to the Children’s ward at Eastbourne DGH. Tendai who attends Heron Park Primary Academy had an idea to hold a sale of his old toys and managed to raise £8.09. He came along to the ward to give the money to the doctors and nurses on the ward.
