THERE was no time for monkeying around as Hartlepool United’s mascot H’Angus undertook a charity walk.
The monkey mascot walked 17 miles from Pools’ training ground in Durham City to the club’s Victoria Park ground for their League One game against Yeovil Town on Saturday.
H’Angus, aka Michael Evans, set off on his challenge at 8am and braved wind and rain in the name of charity to complete the walk around six hours later.
He raised money for Prostate Cancer UK, the Football League’s official charity partner for this season, whose representatives staged a collection at the game.
H’Angus was given rapturous at the start of the match as fans showed their appreciation for the feat.
He thanked fans on Twitter, saying: “Having a nice hot muscle bubble bath while reading all these well wishers.
“Thank you for all the support.”
