Swaffham bank staff turn on the Girl Power to raise cash for hospice
Customers at a Swaffham bank had a shock this week after being served by the Spice Girls.
Staff at the Natwest branch, in the Market Place, dressed up as the pop stars for a day and raised just over �446 for the Swaffham and Litcham Home Hospice.
The charity, which is based on Swaffham's EcoTech Park, provides emotional and practical support to people who are severely ill or have terminal illnesses.
Manager of Swaffham's Natwest branch, Beccy Sewell, said: 'We were very pleased with how much we raised. There was a huge community atmosphere – it was brilliant.'
Miss Sewell dressed as Ginger Spice, Victoria Germain turned herself into Baby Spice, Jill Button became Sporty Spice, Jane Hurt was Scary Spice and Gemma Wardale dressed as Posh Spice.
The majority of the money was raised by a raffle, which included 15 prizes donated by local businesses.
Miss Sewell said the branch aims to raise �3,000 over the next year to pay for a machine to benefit people who are supported by the hospice.
