A SIDMOUTH granddad will end decades of charity exploits with a ‘cockney knees-up’ next week.

A SIDMOUTH granddad will end decades of charity exploits with a ‘cockney knees-up’ next week.

Water Lane resident Baz Breadmore, 71, hopes Friday the 13th will prove lucky for the British Heart Foundation and see him reach a £54,000 fundraising goal he set himself more than 30 years ago.

Baz recently raised thousands when he took on Everest -despite only having one lung.

His May 13 cockney event at the Blue Ball, Sidford, will feature bangers and mash, cabaret, a sing along and performances by folk singer Sue King and keyboard player Rob Preese.

Revellers are also invited to bring their own musical instruments.

“I thought a good old knees-up would be good fun,” said Baz, “I’m almost up to my £54,000 goal and reckon this will get me over the line.”

Tickets (£8) available from Baz on (01395) 519232.
