Brave staff at Sainsbury’s in Denny let Comic Relief get under their skin on Friday when a few male managers decided to get their legs waxed.

Fraser Caldwell and Mark Lord took it like men when the sticky strips were applied and quickly torn off. The event was part of a whole range of activities the store organised in a bid to raise money for the charity. These included a 30-mile charity cycle, a guess the doll’s age competition, head shaving, and a charity raffle. Store workers also bid to have a day off and have their manager work the shift for them. All the activities, which took place over a week, raised over £2500.

Customers at The Krop Shop salon in Banknock saw their hairdressers wearing onesies on Friday. The staff decided to dress up and held other activities all for 
Comic Relief.

Alex Totten donated prizes and hosted a question and answer session for Comic Relief on Friday. The event, held at Tennant in Bankside Industrial Estate on Friday, was a great success with many residents picking up great prizes.

Staff at Renella’s in Callendar Riggs took a break from their usual smart dress in favour of pyjamas. The hairdressers also swapped scissors for cooking equipment all in aid of Comic Relief.

Red Noses were in fashion at Falkirk’s Wellside Kindergarten last week. The wee ones, along with their parents and grandparents, took part in Yoga as part of their Healthy Body Happy Me topic and paid £1 to wear red. There was also a cake sale and £241 was raised.

Fundraisers held at Nethermains Primary School got active for Comic Relief. The children in Primary 3 organised Zumbathon in red clothes and fellow pupils from nursery to primary 7 took part and enjoyed a healthy snack afterwards. Local businesses, including The Fruit Basket, Sainsbury’s, the Coop and Tesco, kindly donated fruit. The event was a resounding success with the total sum raised from donations on the day totalling £250.

Children at Bantaskin Primary must have had a confusing walk to school on Friday when they took part in odd shoe day. The pupils also donned red noses to support their fundraiser for Comic Relief which raised £520.
