Pensioner Harry Davies managed to raise £940 following his glider flight exploits.
Mr Davies, of Northfield Road, was raising funds for Lupus UK as his daughter, Holly Firth-Davies, suffers from the condition.
Mr Davies, 90, said: “We managed to raise more than £900 thanks to people donating online, and via cash and cheques.
“All the money has now gone to Lupus UK. I would like to thank everyone who donated to the cause.”
