While ill-health may have ruled the Caring Caretaker out of his annual Christmas charity sit-out in Coleraine, a team of trusty volunteers have put their names to a rota to ensure that his chosen charities don’t miss out on vital funds.

Around twenty volunteers will take over Davy’s usual position in front of the Christmas tree for the duration of the sit out, which will end as usual on Christmas Eve.

Ballycastle man Angus Iliff is just one of the volunteers who will take a turn as well as Ballymoney man Geoff McAuley and Bushmills man Ali McCallum.

The charities to benefit will be Cancer Focus, Chest, Heart & Stroke, Children to Lapland, Coleraine Blind Centre, Community Search and Rescue, Defibrillators at the Heart of Every Game, Marie Curie Cancer, Sandelford Special School, two community projects in Africa, Charlene’s Project and The Wheatfield Project.
