200 lay down support
CHARITY: Organisers of the Daisy Appeal dinner dance were literally floored with surprise following an impromptu fundraising stunt.
The great and the good of the East Riding, who were dressed top-to-toe in their finery, were challenged by a fellow guest to lie on the floor during Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars song at the event.
Challenger and businessman Brian Yeardley pledged to give £5 to the appeal for everyone who followed his lead.
Five minutes later, 200 people were on the floor as Hull group Ti Amero performed the song.

Speaking about the challenge, which raised £1,000, Mr Yeardley said: "I saw a similar stunt on holiday recently but the bar only managed to persuade 15 people to join in. I thought it would be a fun way to bring us all together for a great cause."
The money will go towards the charity's £6.6 million target for specialist scanning and research equipment.
