Two coffee shop colleagues put their best feet forward together to raise money for deprived communities around the world.

Janet McDiarmid, of Costa, and assistant manager Stacey Roach donned fancy dress for the walk from the Baxter Gate shop to Lakeside.

It was all in the name of a good cause, with cash going to the Costa Foundation, which aims to improve the welfare of coffee-growing communities.

Janet, 53, of Bentley, said: “We raised £450 in sponsorship and it took us an hour and a half to get to Lakeside.”
