Gosport's citizen of the year is proud of the honour
FUNDRAISING champion Les Heyhoe has said how happy he is to have been named as Citizen of the Year.
The 59-year-old was given the honour at this year’s mayor-making ceremony in Gosport by Mayor of Gosport Cllr Lynn Hook.
He is known in the town as The Man Of Many Millions as he has raised more than £10m for charity.
Les said: ‘With Gosport having a big population, I was very proud of being given the honour. I was invited to bring some people along to the mayor-making but I didn’t tell them why. I was a lovely surprise for them.
‘It was nice to be recognised and I was very proud of the fact that the local authority did it in this way.’
