WOLVERHAMPTON FUNDRAISER FINDS CHEEKY WAY TO RAISE FUNDS

As part of his fundraising for the London Marathon, Jonathan Green from Fallings Park, Wolverhampton, sold a space on his buttock to be tattooed.

The winning bidder Dave Anson, who inspired Jon to run, bought the space for £200 and his name was tattooed on Jonathan’s buttock at Tattoo Palace in Chapel Ash. Jon also decided to surround Dave’s name with a heart.

So far, Big Jon has collected £2840 and has agreed to collect the outstanding £300 within the next few days. He is proud to have raised over £3,000 and had a good time along the way.

Jon also became a Social Media sensation when he helped a fellow runner, who was about to quit halfway through, cross the finishing line.

Jon was one of six runners raising money for Newlife and every penny they raised will go to fund equipment for children with disabilities or terminal illness.
