Blackpool was bouncing as a disco dancing 82-year-old entertained shoppers for charity.
With disco music blaring and a mini trampoline to keep him light on his feet Alan Houghton danced for one hour straight on Saturday afternoon - no mean feat for an octogenarian.
The charitable chap took on the task in the hope of raising hundreds of pounds for Cancer Research, the charity which helped his late girlfriend Jean Gittus.
He was boogying on Bank Hey Street to the likes of I’m In The Mood For Dancing and We Are Family between midday and 4pm on Saturday.
In a quick break between dance sessions, and not at all out of breath, Mr Houghton told The Gazette: “I had fantastic support from people, it’s been very good and a very good collection.
“I think she’d be very proud of me.”
Mr Houghton, of Bloomfield Road, Blackpool was inspired to support the charity after his girlfriend died aged just 54, in 2011, after a battle with cancer.
He added: “I went into despair after she died but thought I have to do something about it.
“It makes me feel really good that I’m putting something back for what the charity did for Jean. She’d think it was bonkers but fantastic.”
The dancer, who celebrated his 82nd birthday earlier in the week, amazed passersby young and old.
Andie Anderson, 12, who donated some of her holiday spends to the charity, said: “It’s good, I’d do something like that.”
And Ella Parker, 72, from Squires Gate, said: “It’s brilliant. I couldn’t do that. He’s got a good heart for what he’s doing.”
Gemma Greenwood, 34, added: “It’s very brave - would I heck do it!
“At his age it’s brilliant.”
