Bleary-eyed fundraisers proved they were right on cue at a 24-hour pool marathon.
A team of potters played through the night to raise £3,367.48 for charity. The group, led by Sean Goddard, 41, of Crosland Moor, raised the money for the Brain Damaged Children’s Charity.
The charity was set up by Sean after his son Travis, now aged two, suffered brain damage following complications at birth.
The charity now helps other youngsters and their families.
The pool marathon, held at Milnsbridge Liberal Club, was a big success. Sean wanted to thank the club, staff and customers at the Foresters Arms in Crosland Moor, Steven Rudd of Russell’s Butchers for donating a huge joint of beef to feed the fundraisers, and all those who took part.
Sean said: “It was a great success. We were exhausted but we beat last year’s total of £2,000 so it was all worthwhile.”
