Apples don’t fall far from the tree

April 13, 2017

Nine year-old Johnny Orr, son of Yarlington Housing Group’s CEO Gary Orr, raises over £1,500 for the homeless charity Shelter.

Gary Orr said: “Unprompted Johnny announced  that he wanted to raise money for the homeless having witnessed the increase  in street homelessness across the south west.”

On 8 April 2017 and after months of training, Johnny ran five miles around the Weymouth coast path.


Through Just Giving, Johnny aimed to raise £925 which he very quickly surpassed, raising over £1,500 to date.

Gary Orr continued: “I’m hugely proud of Johnny’s efforts. Hopefully his efforts can inspire more of us to help end the housing crisis.”
