Byline: JENNIFER HYLAND j.hyland@dailyrecord.co.uk

GAVIN Levitt is living proof that some people will do anything for charity.

The construction worker is running the London marathon next month to raise money for Children with Cancer UK.

In a bid to get pals to dig deep Gavin offered to recreate the Money Supermarket ad which features a man in high heels dancing down the street if they helped him raise PS1000 in less than a month.

His pals couldn't wait to see him in a pair of hotpants and very quickly raised more than double his target.

So Gavin, from Inverkip, Renfrewshire, kept to his word, got hold of a pair of size 11 red heels and some XXL hotpants, and strutted his stuff to the Pussycat Dolls hit Don't Cha.

Now a clip of his stunt has proved a hit online.

Gavin, who works in London, said: "I was trying to think of a really fun but stupid way to raise funds, so I dreamed up this to PSencourage friends to help me raise PS1000 in a month.

"Obviously I didn't think we would, but it was worth it to raise cash for a good cause.

"I had a little trouble sourcing a pair of size 11 high heels at first, but I got there in the end thanks to eBay.

"And last Monday, my friends and I went to the London eye and recreated the clip, with all the dancing and bending and strutting." strutting."
