Charity Sacks Snailman: The Guardian

A charity director who spent 26 days crawling the 26.2 mile London marathon dressed as a giant snail has been sacked after failing to raise enough money. Lloyd Scott, 49, who worked as director of fundraising at Action for Kids, endured vomiting and cramps as he dragged his Brian the Snail costume – from the Magic Roundabout – around the course. He had hoped to raise at least £100,000, but managed only £20,000.
