Fun way to help cause
THREE male hospital employees dressed as female nurses to raise money for Children In Need.
Darren Holford, aged 45, David Wall and the Wayne Bromley, both aged 31, who all work at the Haywood Hospital in Burslem, spent all yesterday wearing their colleagues' uniforms, as well as colourful wigs.
And together they raised more than £770 in sponsorship.
Set up by the BBC, the Children In Need charity aims to make a difference to the lives of children across the UK and has raised more than £650 million towards that end.

Darren, of Stone, who is part of the hospital's security staff, said he was overwhelmed with the generosity of both the patients and staff.
He added: "It has been brilliant. It's an amazing total. I'm quite impressed that we have made so much as it's only a small hospital and we would like to thank everyone who has donated.
"It's the first time we've done something like this and we have all agreed to do it again next year."
David, of Meir, who also works in security, said: "I felt quite proud actually. We raised so much money and had a lot of fun doing it."
Wayne, of Birches Head, who works as a porter, was stunned by the kindness of those who donated.
He added: "It was absolutely fantastic. There were loads and loads of kind people, we have done absolutely outstanding.
"It just goes to show there are people out there willing to help out for a good cause."
