4:19pm Thursday 1st May 2014 in News
Pubgoers in Otley will cheer on racing snails at a fundraiser this weekend.
Supermarket worker Tom Featherstone is holding the charity evening at the Yew Tree on Saturday to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Local Sainsbury’s employee Tom will add the proceeds from the night, which will also feature a raffle, to the funds he is collecting for his sponsored skydive on Sunday, May 18.
He is also holding a bag pack at the Otley Sainsbury’s store earlier on Saturday to further boost his total.
Tom is doing the skydive, a tandem jump from 10,000ft at Bridlington, in memory of his inspirational great-grand-mother, Jean Lee.
