Students raise $2,000 to send ‘jolly’ janitor on vacation
World | society | 15:18, 29 June 2018 | 716

AKIPRESS.COM - A cleaner at a British university broke down in tears after students raised $2,063 to send him and his wife to Jamaica on vacation to see family, NYPost reported.

Herman Gordon, who has worked at Bristol University for more than a decade, is described as “one of the most loved” members of its cleaning staff.

He is so well liked a group of students raised money to give him a holiday.

A video shows a student hand an envelope of cash to a surprised Gordan who immediately begins to tear up.

He wipes away tears with a cleaning cloth and hugs the student who gave it to him.

Gordan said: “I want to thank every one of you and God bless every one of you.”

The group of students started the fundraising page because they liked Gordon so much.

A post said: “The Jamaican cleaner in the med library is the jolliest man I have ever met, he makes me smile even when I’m in the deepest depths of revision or trying to be, if you wanna reason to smile go talk to him for a min or two.”
