People often make extraordinary sacrifices for charities, but this one might take the cake.
After committing to a 100-mile bike ride to raise funds for a local charity, lifelong Ipswich Town fan Andrew Glover jokingly promised to get the emblem of Ipswich’s rival, Norwich City, tattooed on his arm if he raised more than £1,000.
A bit unexpectedly, commitments poured in and Andrew raised just over that number, bringing in £1,136 for his cause, the Norwich-based Hamlet Centre Trust.
A man of his word, Andrew honored his pledge, and despite an initial reluctance, had Norwich City’s recognizable ‘Canary’ inked onto his arm.
Despite the psychological setback, Andrew’s perspective remains practical, as he was quoted after the tattoo session as saying, “I’ll be wearing long sleeves now when I go to Portman Road. And I’m going to have to get an Ipswich tattoo.”
