A rowing novice is planning his next fundraiser after collecting more than £6,000 for the MS Society.
Dale Deacon, 46, from Saltaire, and two friends rowed from Cumbria to the Isle of Man to support the charity.
The director of Watermill Press Ltd, Tom Salt (pictured behind Dale) from London and Mike Burton from Bridlington, completed the challenge in 23 hours, including a rest stop.
Mr Deacon said: “So far our row has raised over £6,000 for the MS Society. Our fundraising page justgiving.com/isleofman row is still open to receive donations. And we’re already planning our next charity adventure.”
