A CHARITY chop was in store for a member of staff at an Alnwick shop who volunteered to do something funny for money for Comic Relief.

Pat Fairless, a price controller at the town’s Sainsbury’s store, has shaved her head in the build-up to tomorrow’s Red Nose Day, which helps transform the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the UK and Africa.

She has raised £300 in sponsorship.

But Pat will not be alone in helping to collect money for the cause, with other staff at the Willowburn Avenue store set to join in with the fund-raising fun.

Pete Guesdon is shaving off his moustache while colleague Graeme Knox will have his legs waxed, both of which will take place in the store tomorrow.

Store manager Debra Thurley will also be doing a sponsored silence, while staff plan to dress up and it is hoped that some of the managers and team leaders will go into the stocks.

Red Nose Day merchandise is available in the store, which has so far raised more than £800 and sold over 1,600 red noses.
