A DOLLAR man has been busy raising money while spreading some festive cheer.

Throughout December, and into the first week of January, David Beveridge collects for the Stromness RNLI Lifeboat.

He does so via donations from visitors to his garden, which is adorned with a number of Christmas decorations.

It all kicked off with a Santa Claus coming in at around eight feet tall.

Now, many years later, his house at Murray Place is lit up by hundreds of bulbs.
