Tin bath row for charity

Have your say

A COCKNEY rowed the distance from London to Liverpool in a tin bath to raise cash for a Sheffield-based charity.

Ross Sheridan, who lives in the capital, has made it his mission to raise £1.5m for the Support Dogs charity, which trains seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy.

He wants to do something positive in memory of his daughter Karen who died aged 26 in 2008 when she suffered a night-time seizure.

Ross said: “I found her diary and in the back there was a ‘wish list’. In it she had written she would have liked to have a seizure alert dog.”

The charity is holding a gala fundraising day at Hillsborough Park on Sunday, July 3, from 10am to 4pm, featuring dog demonstrations, fun dog show, craft stalls, hot air balloon rides and a go-kart track.
