A GOLCAR man has raised £2,000 for Huddersfield Royal Infirmary's cardiac unit.
David Tinsley, 66, of Warwick Avenue, raised the cash for the unit's Heart of Huddersfield appeal during 2003.
He made and sold wooden key ring holders, shopping list boards, letter racks, telephone notepads and pens.
He also compiled many quiz sheets, which he sold to friends and family.
Mr Tinsley has been raising money for the cardiac unit since 2001. That year, he raised £600 and in 2002 he raised £1,233.
He began raising money after an operation on his spine forced him to take early retirement. He wanted to help the cardiac unit because of the care he received there after a heart attack in 1996. He was also helped by the unit when he had a heart bypass operation a month later.
Mr Tinsley said: "Since then, I have attended many rehabilitation classes to keep up the good work the doctors and nurses gave to continue my life.
"After recovering from my spine operation I have been raising money. I always try to better the previous year's total."
