Liz Nicholson, a postlady for Royal Mail Worksop, said the day has been good fun doing something different – despite getting up at the crack of dawn.

"It’s been really good and it's nice to help our fellow posties for this worthy cause. It's been really nice being out on delivery,” Liz said.

"Lots of customers have been coming out and taking photos and making donations, so we've had the support of the community as well.”

The fundraising is for a young girl whose parents work for Royal Mail in Swansea.
