On July 14, Mr Brown took a £14,366.00 cheque to the Help for Heroes the amount raised following a year of selling.

He said it was "not bad for the year, and also takes the cake" for the highest amount raised. His aim is to hit the £100,000 for the charity in his wife's memory.

He said: "That £100,000.00 is now in sight, I can see it , what a moment that will be."
