The director of Grantham Fabrications has thanked the ‘fun and generous people’ who enabled him to raise over £700 for the British Heart Foundation by wearing a dress.

George Holt decided to take the BHF’s ‘Wear It, Beat It’ campaign at its word, and dressed in drag for his entire day at work during the charity’s national fund-raising on February 6.

The red dress which he ordered off eBay proved to be money well-spent, as he raised an impressive £740.

The cause is particularly important to the 54-year-old as he himself has had a valve fitted into his heart. He is full of praise for his friends, family and colleagues who have supported him and donated.

“I’ve only been able to raise that much because of the fun and generous people that I work with, and go to the pub with,” he said.

Alan Hayes who sent this fabulous photo to the Journal added: “Well done George from all at Grantham Fabrications.”
