STAFF at Bradford and Bingley, in The Bridges, Sunderland, braved the biting weather yesterday and posed in their pyjamas to promote a charity event.

The workers have signed up for Britain's Biggest All-Day Breakfast, which takes place on Friday, March 7, in aid of Cancer Research UK, and yesterday urged others in the North-East to join them.

The fundraising team, led by Julie Ann Suckley, spent the day in pyjamas to promote the event and served tea and coffee to customers.

Ms Suckley said: "We are really looking forward to taking part in Britain's Biggest All-Day Breakfast.

"It is a really easy and enjoyable way to raise money for Cancer Research UK, which is such an important cause."

Anyone wanting to take part in the event is asked to call Suzanne Bunn, at Cancer Research UK, on 0191-281 8288.
