Rochdale resident Jim Tossking has announced that he hopes to raise £25m for the N.H.S. by supping 100 pints of bitter.

A regular at Rochdale’s famous Rat and Pudding pub, Jim is known to locals as ‘That tosser’, which h thinks is an affectionate reference to his surname. “Any bugger can walk up and down the bloody garden.” said Jim.  “He made 20 million so I reckon doing 100 pints ought to get at least 25 million.”

“Obviously I’m not going to buy the ale myself so I’m expecting the local N.H.S trust to pony up for the beer. It’s not like they won’t coin it from the sponsor money.” Jim expects to take the ‘Sponsored Sup’ to take seven nights, but others in the Rat and Pudding were unconvinced. “He’s a total jessie” said landlady Rita Brass.

“Yon streak of piss couldn’t sup three in a night without throwing up on his dog.”
