Posties in Ripon have been doing their rounds in fancy dress to raise money for Ripon Hospital.  

  • Posties in Ripon have donned fancy dress on a Thursday while doing their rounds.  
  • It's to raise money for Ripon Hospital - they've raised more than £4,000 so far.  
  • They've been dressing up for the last nine weeks.  

They've been doing the challenge each week on a Thursday for the last nine weeks.  

Residents have donated more than £4,000 for the hospital.  

They've worn around 200 outfits so far.  

Scott McKennan is one of the posties.  He said:

"We thought what we'd do, to lift people's spirits, is to dress up on a Thursday - just to have a laugh.  We donated to a collection box ourselves, for the privilege of wearing non-uniform!  Then customers started asking us why we were doing it.  We explained we were raising money for the NHS - and they started donating as well.

"We've had all sorts - Roman gladiators, Buddhist monks, Dennis the Menace, Pop Eye, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White - the list is phenomenal!" 

The posties have been uploading the outfits they've worn to the Blow Your Horn Ripon Facebook page.
