An Instagram and Youtube star from Watford with hundreds of thousands of followers raised more than £1,500 for a charity after clearing out his wardrobe.

Elias Riadi, who runs a Youtube channel dedicated to fashion and street wear, donated some of his old clothes to Home-Start Watford charity shop over the weekend. His donations sold out "in minutes", according to the charity shop, and fans came from as far as Ascot to meet him.

He commented on how therapeutic it was clearing out his cupboards to donate to the family support charity.

He was interviewed by students from West College and he was joined by Watford's up and coming music artist Connie Constance, who donates to the shop on a regular basis.

Emma Power Home-Starts CEO said: "We are so grateful for Elias’ support, he is very keen to help local children and his donations have raised enough for us to provide over 60 home visits to families, we are hoping more young people will donate and visit our shop because of his promotion and support."

Home-Start Watford and Three Rivers is a charity that provides support for families in times of need and crisis.
