STAFF at Brantano in Wisbech got a new look at the weekend when they were given makeovers by customers to raise money for the baby charity Tommy's.

Customers were given the chance to get stuck into the face paints and transformed staff into spooky figures such as Dracula and fun Halloween characters including a pumpkin.

The Mayor of Wisbech, Councillor Yvonne Lawrence, visited the Sandown Road store on Saturday to cheer on the proceedings and around �70 was raised.

Store manager Tulin Dalsar said: "This is the first time we have given customers a chance to do the face painting and we would like to thank all those who took part and those who gave donations."

The store is currently running a 'New for Old' campaign which lasts until Sunday November 15. During the campaign for every pair of old shoes taken into the store customers will be given a �10 off money voucher when spending �50 or more in any one transaction on shoes.

The unwanted shoes could be delivered to an African trader who will repair, clean and polish them. They can then be sold locally for a modest amount providing a major source of income and a lifeline for poverty stricken communities.
