Witches, ghouls and a creepy, white rabbit served customers in Portishead as they raised money for a 28-year-old man who has been left paralysed after suffering a stroke.

Staff at T&G Woodware, in Old Mill Road, made a donation to dress in Halloween costumes and they also tucked into cakes and biscuits in aid of the cause.

The employees are raising money to help their colleague Lynn Hooper’s nephew Chris, known as Millzy, who is unable to breath unaided and has lost all movement from the neck down after suffering from a stroke. Chris’ family are hoping to raise £50,000 so he can have life-changing stem cell treatment abroad.

Staff regularly donate money to charity thanks to warehouse supervisor, Jane Petch, who runs a staff tuck shop where proceeds are given to good causes.
