COLERAINE’S ‘Caring Caretaker’ is already turning his attentions towards his Christmas sit-out following another successful ‘Big Breakfast.’

Almost 200 people attended Davy Boyle’s annual get-together in Coleraine’s Lodge Hotel, raising £2,297 in the process.

That brings the total amount raised this year to £7,492 - and a whopping £560,571 since he first started out on his charity work.

Now, with less than three weeks to go until the start of his festive fundraiser, the former Coleraine Town Hall caretaker is looking to finish the year on a high.

“I would love to finish this year having raised £35,000,” says the popular grandad.

“That would take me to near £600,000 which would be amazing.

“But we’ll see what happens. A lot depends on the weather but I’d be hopeful we’ll do well,” he added.
