Romford TK Maxx staff dress up for Comic Relief
STAFF from a Romford clothes store raised �780 for Comic Relief by dressing up in 80s style outfits.
The workers from TK Maxx, in The Brewery, took to the streets to collect donations from passers-by.
They even locked district managers Tracy Harman and Lee Bovington in a cage until they raised enough money to release them.
Michelle Brown, manager of the store, said: “It was very successful. Lots of people on the streets of Romford were very generous with their donations.
“It was overwhelming because everyone was putting money in.
