A STAG do with a difference has raised more than £2,000 for charity.

Bridegroom Andy Bond, of High Green, and three pals swapped the usual night out for a few days travelling from Sheffield to Benidorm in an old banger – themed as TV detectives Starsky and Hutch.

They collected at least £2,200 for Macmillan and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in North Anston.

Andy, who married bride Katie Millar, said: “I do enjoy a good night out but I wanted to do something different.

“It’s something I have always wanted to do and getting married is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so I thought this could be another.”

The production engineer and his brother Richard Bond and pals Paul Haresign and David Nell, journeyed from Sheffield to Benidorm in the 16-year-old Astra.

Andy, 35, said: “We got lost at every point - I was navigating to Dover and ended up going through London so we had to pay the congestion charge!

“Paul is quite a loud snorer so he had a lovely night’s sleep but nobody else did. It was really good fun.”
