MOST opted to stay indoors during heavy snowfall earlier this month - apart from a bikini-clad woman who decided to raise cash for charity.
Julie Bathie, 61, donned her bikini in the snow for Macmillan.
“I’ve done fundraisers for Macmillan in the past, but it’s always been a coffee morning or a raffle,” said Julie, of Millers Dale, Worsbrough. “My friend suggested I make snow angels in my bikini and it only started out as a bit of fun but I ended up raising quite a bit from it.
“I wanted to show that cancer never gets locked down but I wanted to have a little fun while doing it.
“It was very cold, and I’m glad I had a cup of coffee waiting for me when I had done.”
Julie raised £500 which will be donated to Macmillan.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
