Council worker Dan, pictured, 61, of Loscoe Grange, decided he wanted to raise money for charity and has helped other causes including alzheimer’s victims in the past.
He said: “They were sponsored and paid £5 to take part. Lolita Pickering raised £200 and Mark and Donna Hodgkinson raised £100 each. Thanks to everyone who took part.”
