BAREFACED staff at a curvy clothes shop went without make-up for a day to launch a charity campaign.

Five employees at Simply Be in The Rock, Bury, fundraised for Cancer Research UK by posing for cosmetics-free selfies as part of the #SimplyMe campaign.

Customers in Bury donated £100 and head office doubled all contributions, meaning across all its nine stores £1,800 was raised.

Store manager Natalie Rigby said: “We were all so conscious of working make-up free but our customers boosted our confidence. We would like to say a massive thank you to them.”

The #SimplyMe campaign was launched following the success of the #nomakeupselfie craze.
