York’s ‘Big Chip Man’ has raised £2,200 for the York Teaching Hospitals Charity. Oliver Dale first became a local celebrity after finding a seven-inch chip with his meal and posting it online. Mr. Dale used his new platform to set up his ‘March Motivator’, aiming to encourage people to carry out at least one motivational activity every day during March 2021. The project’s fundraiser will be used to purchase equipment for York’s Covid wards.
