Norwich carer sits in pool of baked beans for charity
A care home worker spent five hours bathing in baked beans to raise money for a charity which supports people with dementia.
Kirk Faulkner, a senior carer at Brooklands Care Home in Costessey Lane, Drayton, which specialises in dementia care, sat in a paddling pool of baked beans in the reception area, from 10am to 3pm yesterday.
He has already raised about �300 for the Alzheimer's Society with more to come in.
The carer, who lives in Norwich, said afterwards: 'It was cold, and it was nice to get in a hot shower afterwards, but it was worthwhile and for a good cause.
'I just said I would do it off the cuff, but I think I may have opened a Pandora's Box now, as I might be challenged to do other events.'
