A PAIR of Wrexham councillors have been horsing around to raise funds for Children in Need.
Labour councillors, Gareth Griffiths and Shan Wilkinson dressed as a pantomime horse and towed a barge across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct to raise money for the cause.
They undertook the intrepid journey in preparation for Children in Need night on November 19, when fundraising and celebrations will be based in Wrexham.
The councillors' journey took them an hour in total and they were left tired but elated.
The councillors are co-chairs of the children and young people scrutiny committee.
Cllr Griffiths said: 'It was a tough journey, but the effort and embarrassment were worth it.
'I want to thank the Llangollen Canal Boat Trust for letting us tow Millie, the barge that they have converted for use by disabled and handicapped children and adults.'
The horse, called Ferrari, was led by Wrexham's Mayor, David Rogers.
Cllr Wilkinson said: 'This is a great cause.
'We've already raised a lot of money and we've been pledged a great deal more.'
Anyone who wants to make a donation to the pair can send a cheque to either councillor at the Guildhall, Wrexham.
