The beginning of January means that Daniel Baker finally can wear something that is not a Christmas jumper. Throughout December he wore a festive sweater every day to raise money for Alzheimers Society and Cancer Research UK in memory of his late grandparents.

After wearing Christmas jumpers for 31 straight days and regularly posting selfies on social media to track his progress, the Lincoln graduate has raised £300. Daniel told The Linc:

“I’m really thrilled to have raised that amount of money. It was much more than I really expected and it owes much to my generous supporters, including colleagues and customers.

“I still miss my grandparents very dearly and I know they’re smiling down from heaven and are proud of what we’ve achieved. I say we, it’s not just me, it’s everyone who’s played a part that’s made this so special.

“I’ve proved that great things can be achieved through simple ideas. I’ve also shown that my selfies are a bit poor! But it wasn’t about my photography skills, it was about doing something for charity.”
