Customers at a hardware store in Eye have helped raise £1,320 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

The money was raised after owner Bruce Salter came up with a novel idea that involved the business making a series of online videos.

General manager Oliver Green was tasked with dressing up in a variety of costumes, including a scarecrow, a newly-hatched chick and a human-size fly, as part of the monthly videos promoting the shop.

The pair then decided to put the outtakes online, but only if people donated to charity.

“Customers were very generous,” said Bruce, whose daughter, Ruby, was helped by the air ambulance when she severed arteries, tendons and ligaments in her arm on her fifth birthday.
