A widower will be wearing a ‘silly’ hat in memory of his late wife to raise money for charity.
It follows the death of his wife Beryl Hall, 80, on February 15, 2013 who had a brain tumour.
Former telephone engineer Alban will visit Accrington town centre on Tuesday, March 24 before taking part in national ‘Wear a Hat’ day on Friday, March 27.
He has already visited Oswaldtwistle library and Blackburn town centre.
He said: “As you get older there’s not a lot of things you can do like swimathons.
“I can certainly wear a hat. That’s not going to be too stressful. It’s fun to do and a good way of raising money.
“Last year they said the money I raised was the equivalent of half-a-day in research which is pretty good.”
Alban, who also served in the army on National Service, said he hopes to match last years total.
He said: “Last year I thought I would maybe get £200 or £300 but it just kept going up and up.”
