POLAR explorer Michael McGrath has raised more than £5,000 through his online charity auction in aid of Muscular Dystrophy.

Mr McGrath, 41, of Buntingford, who is co-founder of the Muscular Help Foundation (MHF), launched the auction last month to provide sufferers of the muscle-wasting disease with memorable experiences.
