Mannequin vigil ends with a victory

TWO Harrogate businessmen, who spent a week camped in a shop window, have raised over £15,000 for Saint Michael’s as part of the charity’s You’re Inspired Challenge.

Jason Odle and Ben Davis finished their mannequin challenge on Sunday night.

The pair, who run Harrogate marketing firm Vida Media, received an award for their vigil at a St Michael’s ceremony on Wednesday night. In total £28,012 has been raised by individuals and companies during its month-long charity fundraiser.

“Even though there were a few moments where we got woken up through the night, it was all in good nature, and we knew that the money we were raising was going to such a good cause,” said Jason.
