A teenager who has been an avid fundraiser since he was just two years old is set to host a 24-hour charity stall outside his house this weekend.
Louis Johnson from Wolverhampton will stand on his drive for a whole day and night to try and raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital, for whom the 16-year-old has raised over £18,000.
There will be a tombola at the stall, as well as an assortment of items such as stationery, plants, jewellery, books, DVDs, and cards.
Louis’s mother, Teresa, said: “The fundraising team at the children’s hospital were just bantering and suggested that Louis could do a 24-hour stall outside his house.
“They told Louis that nobody else had done it before, so he’ll be on the drive for 24 hours.
In March, Louis was crowned the West Midlands winner of the UK’s Young Neighbour of the Year Awards, for looking after his neighbours during the height of lockdown.
