A CADBURY'S employee from Kington made a sweet £5,000 donation to a local charity that helps young people through family crisis.

Wayne Bufton, who works at the Marlbrook factory outside Leominster, was picked from the thousands of Cadbury employees to donate the money to the charity of his choice.

Wayne decided to give the money Hope Support Services, based in Ross-on-Wye, who support young people when family members are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

The £5,000 Cadbury Foundation grant will help the charity to reach a greater number of 11 to 25 year olds living across Herefordshire.
