A trucker from Louth will be spending his first working week in February wearing a frilly red Tutu to work to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation.
Alan Drew, 36, has worked for Goodwins Removals, based in Grimsby, for the last five years and will be joining his lorry driving colleagues in their charity Tutu task to raise a target of £3,000 for their chosen charity.
They will be spending February 2-6 heading to and from work in red Tutus and the British Heart Foundation is a cause that is very close to Alan’s heart and he was happy to jump on board and take part, despite his nerves.
“The reason why I wanted to take part in this charity fundraising for the British Heart Foundation is because of my daughter Mackenzie,” Alan explained.
“She’s 10-years-old now, but when she was younger she had a hole in her heart and she had to undergo open heart surgery when she was just two and half, so it’s a cause that is very close to me. I am a bit nervous about doing it, and I’m sure I’ll get a few funny looks, but it’ll be good fun at the same time.
Over 40 people that Alan works with from across the country will be taking part in the charity Tutu task and are hoping to raise as much money as possible. If you would like to donate towards this worthy cause, then please visit their JustGiving page via: www.justgiving.com/truckersintutus.
