A manager of the Kimberley Sainsburys store was given a red back for Red Nose Day.
Staff at the store put on a number of fundraising events for the day, including a books and DVD stall, leg waxing for store managers and some members of the team s pent the day in costume.
And fresh food team leader Mike Varley, 40, from Chilwell had his back waxed.
He said: “My back’s very cold now. It feels like something’s missing. It’s very bizarre. I wouldn’t really describe it as painful. I didn’t want to have my legs waxed because I teach Karate classes and I’d look weird all hairy up top with bare legs. I hope i didn’t put the customers off.”
Emma Ellis, who came into work dressed as a rodeo bull, said: “A lot of staff came in red clothes today – and we’ve got an inflatable horse and dry foods manager Richard Straw is dressed as a pirate.
Store manager Richard Moor, who had his legs waxed, said: “I feel slightly naked, but it’s for such a good cause. Sainsbury’s has quite a long tradition helping out witt comic relief so it’s nice to muck in and do a bit extra.”
The company beat its total last year with more than £11 million donated across the group. and the store contributed around £4,000.
Richard added on Friday: “We’ve counted £2,700 so far and we hope to beat last year by the end of the day.”
Sainsburys has been involved with Comic Relief for the past 11 years.
The Main Street store also worked with Kimberley School, challenging pupils to a bake-off and blindfolded icing competion.
On Saturday, March 14, the store also welcomed dance troupes for two flash-mob routines during the day.
