Regarding this photo from the 3 March issue of Memory Lane, although I fail to remember certain details, this was a memorable occasion.
Mr Gowthorpe, far right, was engaged in a sponsored slim in aid of the British Heart Foundation.
The event took place at the Viking Hotel in York.
The presentation of the cheque took place at the Half Moon Inn at Newton-on-Derwent where Mr Gowthorpe and his wife Pat were regular customers.
Mr Gowthorpe was originally from Sutton-on-Derwent and moved to Pocklington with Pat in the late 1980s.
Sadly, Mr Gowthorpe and his wife are deceased and myself and my ex-husband Barry no longer run the Half Moon Inn.
