A KIND resident has been thanked for fixing up a charity's signage, despite it being ruined by vandals.

Dennis Saunders, of Mold, said he noticed the sandwich board outside the Daniel Owen Centre in the town centre last summer.

He decided to offer Daniel Owen Centre manager, Cllr Karen Hodgkinson, a hand to get the board fixed.

Mr Saunders, 75, said: "It looked a total mess and was falling apart, so I said to Karen 'would you like it done up'? And she said she would.

"I spent ages fixing it up."

Cllr Hodgkinson said the newly repaired board was placed outside the centre, but it was soon targeted by vandals.

She said: “We put it out and it was destroyed - we don’t know who by.

“It was upsetting, considering the time he put in.

"It's disheartening when you’ve got people coming along and doing that. It is not necessary."

Mr Saunders wasn't deterred however. He repaired the board for a second time.

He said: "It was ready for the skip really, but I thought no – I spent a lot more time on it.

“I love that board, its old fashioned."

Cllr Hodgkinson said: "A big thanks to Dennis for doing that for the second time.

"He spent a lot of time fixing it up and bringing it back up to its former glory.

“He has saved the charity a lot of money because sandwich boards are not cheap."
