A 13-year-old Weston boy who started washing cars to save money has been inundated with gifts for his efforts including a PlayStation 4 and a £100 tip.
AJ Williams, who attends Hans Price Academy, started washing his neighbours' cars to save up for a PlayStation. AJ asked people to donate what they feel the work is worth, and cars with blue badges receive a free wash.
Moved by his hard work, people began stopping AJ in the street to give him money, and a generous donor also presented him with a PlayStation.
AJ and his dad are 'overwhelmed at the response from the community, and AJ is planning to use the money he has raised so far to donate a hamper of food to the Foodbank.
His dad Antony Williams said: “I’m over-the-moon proud of him. People started pulling up on the street while he was washing cars and giving him money.
"Someone came to the house with an envelope and £100 and another lady donated a PlayStation.
“Thank you to everyone in Weston. I didn’t know how many nice people there were. So many people have been amazing.”
