Boxing gold medallist Anthony Joshua takes on new role at Homestart
Olympic boxing gold medallist Anthony Joshua has been named as ambassador of the Watford and Three Rivers charity Homestart.
The champ visited the Lord Street charity, which supports families with children under five in times of crisis, on Saturday.
Emma Power, Homestart office manager, said: "We are delighted Anthony has chosen to be an ambassador for our charity and we look forward to working with him the future.
"He gave up time in his busy schedule to come and meet some local Watford children and was an inspiration, encouraging them to do well at school and get involved in sport.
"The children all had a marvellous time."
As well as signing autographs and posing for pictures with his prestigious medal, Mr Joshua judged the colouring competition.
Danielle Gordon was the winner with her slogan "turn your trash into treasure". She won a family ticket to the Harry Potter Studios
