Big hearted Year 9 boys are raffling off a theme park win for the Help the Heroes charity. The six foot cuddle Tiger dubbed “Stocky”, after Mr Stockdale, who runs the famous Thornhill Parc Asterix for 19 years, was raffled at school with tickets fetching £1 a strip. The boys will name the winner before the end of the week.
The tiger had to stow away in the under carriage of the coach after it was too large to join the pupils in the coach. Smiles were raised by UK border control offices and it certainly raised a few eyebrows on Thornholme Road at 6.30am when the boys took to carrying a 6FT tiger home!!
