‘ISLE of Wight businessman Darren Street has set up a crowdfunding campaign — to buy Prime Minister Boris Johnson some silver cufflinks from Harrods.
Darren, of Newport, set a £1,000 goal and had raised £886 by this morning (Saturday).
He said: “No matter where you stand left-wing or right-wing , you can only agree that Boris has led the UK through Covid-19 with sheer determination and passion for his country and the people within.
“Boris has worked relentlessly and if we look at what our UK Prime Minister is paid compared to that of a professional footballer it is minuscule, especially for doing the job he does and having the burden of responsibility he does.
“I want to do something that has never been done before, I want to raise £1,000 and purchase a gift to not only say Get Well Soon Boris but also to show our appreciation as a nation and to say Thank You.’
