HUDDERSFIELD has gone Comic Relief crazy!

Dozens of events are taking place in pubs, clubs, offices, shops and schools.

And tonight many people will be glued - although not literally - to their TV screens to see showbusiness stars aim to raise millions for charity.

Huddersfield policeman Dean Brown helped to raise money for Comic Relief - but chose the painful way.

A beauty session at Woodview Beauty Salon in Penistone Road, Shelley, ended in silky soft legs for the constable.

Pc Brown works with the Huddersfield road traffic department.

His full leg wax has raised an impressive £460 to date.

Rebekah Cole is the salon's owner and manager.

She said: "We had a right laugh. He didn't scream too much. He was biting down on a spatula!"

Care worker Hannah King is to survive a month of grime to raise money for charity.

Hannah, 41, is to last a month without washing her hair to raise money for the West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust, a charity set up to build a children's hospice in the area.

The married mother-of-three made the pledge to discover how it feels for people with long-term illnesses who depend on basic care.

Her bad hair month began yesterday, after she enjoyed a hair makeover at Stephie's hair salon, Westbourne Road, Marsh.

Hannah must now endure 30 days of grime to complete the challenge.

Hannah, of Crosland Edge, Meltham, said: "I know it is not going to be easy, especially because I have got a few events around Easter.

"My hair will look horrendous - but I am determined to do it.

"After two days you normally want to wash your hair, so I don't know how it will feel."

Anybody wanting to sponsor Hannah can call her on 01484 854283.

Staff at Sainsbury's Shore Head store have been encouraging shoppers to dig deep into their pockets.

A range of activities, including fancy dress and music, have been taking place this week.
