Mr Splash, real name Harry Wilcockson, was from Mansfield Woodhouse and spent more than thirty years working tirelessly to raise money for various charities.

Shoppers in Mansfield town centre would often see Mr Splash on his three-wheeler, entertaining children whilst raising thousands of pounds for good causes.

Children who donated to his charity bucket would receive a lollipop or, if you were one of the lucky ones, a Mr Splash badge.

Mr Splash passed away in October 2007 but left behind a legacy of fond memories for all who met him.
