Dashing and daring

■ Pensioner Phillip Cohen, 82, of Brackenfell showed just how much dash he still had in him when he snatched R6 405.14 worth of goods at Checkers Hyper in Fairbridge Mall yesterday. The 82-year-old won a trolley dash to the value of R5 000 after finding a mini golden trolley with Checkers Little Shop 2 mini collectibles. Checkers spokeswoman Angelique Wagner said Mr Cohen surprised staff by showing just how fit he still was, running through the store, snatching blankets, appliances, groceries – and even a bicycle, which he intended for his own use. Mr Cohen was cheered on by family and staff as he ran around the store filling his trolley, Ms Wagner said.
