BISHOPSTON celebrity Dale the Dalek has teamed up with local businesses as part of the upcoming Window Wanderland trail.

Dale, created by local resident Keith Walker, featured in last month's Bishopston Voice - he can be spotted basking in the sunshine in his beach-themed front garden in Thornleigh Road.

On the evening of the trail, as well as throughout the month, Keith is calling on locals to brave the chill and have their photo taken - in their swimwear - to raise money for Chidlren's Hospice South West, which cared for his nephew who suffered from muscle dystrophy.

Boston Tea Party are to provide cakes and hot drinks outside of Keith's house during the trail, which runs from 5-8pm on February 7.

Keith has also persuaded more than 30 of his neighbours to sign up to the trail, with five people committing themselves to donning swimwear and sitting in the deck chair.

He states on a poster: "The more people we have, the more money we can make for Children's Hospice South West. Come and sit in the deckchair [and] feel the heat." 

To take part in the challenge, and to donate to the Children's Hospice South West, visit Dale the Dalek at 48 Thornleigh Road, off Gloucester Road. Also, follow @DaletheDalek on Twitter.
